These remarkable women did an amazing thing. I read this book years ago and it is one of the few books I have saved to read again. The odds against them were so high you would not think they would make it 100 miles by themselves on foot but what a journey they had! Good read.

Unforgetable story of a woman and her daughter who answer a challenge to walk across the United States in 1896.
