Saints on the Seas: A Maritime History of Mormon Migration, 1830-1890
Conway B. Sonne (au)
The maritime tradition is particularly important to the history of the Mormons. Although less than 700 Mormon missionaries traveled to foreign lands to proselytize during the 19th cent., their activities garnered 85,000 converts, most going to America. This narrative details the long and often dangerous voyages required of the emigrants to reach Amer. soil, where they began their overland trek to the West. It chronicles the vital statistics and voyages of approx. 300 Amer., British, German, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, and French ships involved in the arduous emigration. Includes statistics on vessels, their owners, number of passengers and voyages, and passage times, as well as data on ship captains, emigrant company leaders, and maritime disasters. Illustrations.
