IAG Featured Writer: Celia Hayes

Celia Hayes is author of "To Truckee's Trail." She lives in San Antonio, Texas and likes to write about the Southwest. Here is part of a review of "To Truckee's Trail" I wrote in an earlier post:To Truckee's Trail, by Celia Hayes is a partially fictional account of pioneers making a journey by wagon train across the western American plains and mountains in search of a better life. Drawing on the journal of an energetic and multi-talented doctor and from interviews with some of the participants done in later years, Ms. Hayes paints a portrait of the extremely difficult struggles pioneers of the early 1800's experienced.

I recommend To Truckee's Trail because it is entertaining and educational. A fine work and a worthy read. The book is available at and other booksellers. Celia's website is found at
