The Best That Can Happen: The Grand Trek
by Kathleen Schmitt
"To fulfill the dreams of one's youth; that is the best that can happen." So said Willa Cather in 1927. "Uh huh. Ever actually, like, try it?" is Kathleen Schmitt's response. These are the stories of preparing for The Grand Trek, a prophetic dream, the events and people encountered along the way, and what happened afterward. From boredom to delight to terror, it's an adventure of a lifetime.
