About the Author

Carol Crawford McManus was born in Grand Valley (now Parachute), Colorado, Carol, the youngest member of the large extended Herwick family, grew up in a family of adults who had lived through and survived the Great Depression. She was reared with tales of the settlement of Western Colorado until the people who lived through them became real to her. She has always been an avid reader of western history, with a special interest on the people who inhabit this area. She is currently researching a book on the 1920s, 30s and 40s in Western Colorado.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

May 1873, Tekamah, Nebraska. The wind blowing up the high bluff tugged at her braids. Ida longed to uncoil the heavy burden and let the breeze ripple through the chestnut-colored strands of her hair, but Ma would be mad if she did that, saying that there was plenty to do without "fiddlin' around" with her looks (page 3)

Format: Paperback
This book should be required reading for every woman living on the Western Slope of Colorado. The format reads like a novel, but Ms McManus inserts factoids at chapter breaks to remind the reader what else was going on in the state & nationally to put Ida's travails into perspective. I thoroughly enjoyed this read & would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Western History and women's adventure stories.

An interesting and well written story of one woman's life. You will not be disappointed in this book. Ida's life is written in novel form with her many triumphs and disappointments drawing the reader in. I couldn't wait to get back to Ida and her life while I was reading this book.

Format: Paperback
I am not the typical book reader you usually see in this site. I seldom read, because I get easily distracted and bored. Yet this book was great. Now I want to read more books on Western Colorado hoping to find other stories as interesting as this was.
