Format: Hardcover
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!

Tells the story of women settling on the land in the Dakotas on their own, with pictures and information that will interest anyone with relatives from there.
