I became interested in this film last fall. One of my friends, Liz Radford, told me about the wonderful opportunity she had to appear as an extra in this film. This story is based upon the life of her ancestor, Ephraim Hanks, and this project became something dear to her heart. I heard of her experiences and was able to see the pictures she took of her transformation into a raggedy member of the handcart company.
The handcart pioneers are also dear to my heart. One of my husband's ancestors was part of the Martin Handcart company, Margaretta Unwin Clark. When I read of her experiences, I realize how much was sacrificed. I just watched part of "17 Miracles" and I can't help but tear up and feel gratitude and be humbled by the experiences shown.
