This book was exactly what I was looking for . . . stories of ordinary women overcoming amazing obstacles!
I recommend this book to those who wish to learn about the settling of the west and the courage required to be one of the settlers, especially the women who came.
This book is filled with letters and stories of women who were homesteaders in MT in the late 1800's-early 1900's.
I don't know how they stood the hardships and the tedium, and the grueling work, but I'm sure glad they settled our area so we could enjoy it later!Published 4 months ago by melanie
This was good information and I learned allot. Reads like a text book with many facts. I'll pass it on to friends interested in the old West.Published 20 months ago by Martha Schulz
