The autobiography of Drusilla Dorris Hendricks is a gem among autobiographies of early members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. From her earliest recollection to her final testimony, Drusilla’s life is an example to all who would follow the Lord, Jesus Christ. With his permission, this publication uses Robert Raymond’s online chapters, footnotes, and illustrations, which contain interesting historical background that confirms and clarifies Drusilla’s writing, but the text presented here is from the earliest handwritten copy in possession of the Henry Hendricks Family Organization. It has been typeset to retain the punctuation, capitalization, grammar, and spelling of the handwritten copy. After careful analysis of all the manuscripts we (HHFO) have found, it appears that the handwritten copy in the HHFO files is the earliest, and from it, all others are edited or typescript versions. Permission has been granted from the Museum of Art at Brigham Young University to reproduce several paintings from the C.C.A. Christensen Collection of the Museum.
