Barry Lane and Niels Henriksen
Thursday, June 14 @7:00 p.m.
In 1973 two college seniors took up the challenge of reliving history.
Mimicking the life style of their ancestors they retraced routes used
by America's settlers in the mid 1800's. Traveling from Mexico to Minnesota
on foot, following spring northward, Barry Lane and Niels
Henriksen experienced many of the same challenges as the pioneers:
dust storms, thirst, blizzards, flash floods and risks from predators and
man. Their inspiring story of adventure has now been captured by
Lane in a new book, Walk In Their Dust. As Lane and Henriksen
reconnect to reminisce their adventures, the audience will be delighted
by their stories of faith and courage.
Programs are open to the public free of charge.
They are held in the Library's Community Room.
