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. There were many Irish women who came over here and were amazing and industrious women. 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.
