This brought tears to my eyes. It is very touching.
Good story. Sad, but good.

You've done a good job writing this. It's a very emotional piece. The land was so unforgiving to those trying to trek across it.

Today, I live in an area with many descendants of the group (I think) you wrote about.

So beautifully written. I ache when I think of those who sacrificed their lives in the hopes of something better.

You really brought your characters to life, and let me "see" the terrain. I would love to see this fleshed out to allow for more back story. Well done.

This is so visual it's tactile. Wonderful, wonderful descriptions, and a wonderfully compelling story.

Once again, your terrifically descriptive writing draws in the reader to participate in the events themselves. Well done, Friend. Thank you, too, for reading my "Proposals" and leaving a comment. It was an added pleasure on this refreshing morning to "meet" you in cyberspace.
