Elaine Lindgren has done an excellent job researching a little known subject. She gives not only a very fine introduction to the subject of homesteading, she provides a wonderful written documentary of the phenomenon of single women who homesteaded in North Dakota. This book is not only wonderfully written (it is actually a page turner), it also leaves the reader enthralled with a whole area of American history which had previously gone undocumented. I truly enjoyed this book and have given copies to friends who tell me they found it just as interesting

I haven't finished this book yet, but what I have read so far is very interesting. One reason I bought this book is that there are photos of my grandmother and her sister and brother, and also my grandfather. When I was a little kid I always knew that my grandfather had homesteaded in Adams County, North Dakota around 1907, but I never realized that women also took part in the homesteading movement. A very enjoyable book.

Many short stories about the forgotten WOMEN pioneers who homesteaded in a then cold, desolate area of the country and made a life on the prairie. Talk about tough, enterprising people! VERY interesting! I have had several people borrow this book, and my mother has read it over and over again until it literally fell apart and she got a 2nd copy!

An interesting read of how the brave women ventured out to make it on their own and of the requirements to own land. Good stories.

Granted I haven't read the whole book yet, but I am so disappointed that there seems to be no Irish women in the book. Are you kidding me? Who the heck do you think came over here and homesteaded? There were many Irish women who came over here and were amazing and industrious women. There were women who came over here from Ireland, and they're not even included in the book? I Thought with the writer from NDSU that she would know who was here. I bought this book for my grandmother, and was so disappointed. Just don't understand.
