The book contains quite a few pictures of these tough women and their homesteads, and diary entries and letters from several of them. I am amazed that anybody could "prove up" a claim in that terribly dry, isolated place. The hunger, heat, cold, wind, sand, lack of water, crop failure, loss of livestock, lack of feminine companionship, and lack of medical care caused so many homesteaders to give up, and yet these women stayed and flourished.
If you enjoy books about the settling of the American West and the pioneer spirit, you will love this book!
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.
