More About the Author
Meanwhile, Linda wrote about pioneer women that homesteaded in Kansas between 1854 to the early 1900s, especially her Swedish immigrant ancestors. Her historical fiction book series are Butter in the Well, Trail of Thread, Planting Dreams and the Kansas Quilter.
She also has a historical western romance series called Brides with Grit.
Linda and her husband finally returned back to Kansas, where they raised American buffalo (bison) for a dozen years.

The hope of the Johnson family as they travel is contagious and I can’t help but wish the best for them on their journey. They fully expect to become wealthy landowners in America. This is partly due to the rumors and stories they heard, but is also based on what they see with their own eyes as they travel west from New York: large farms with neat houses, healthy looking livestock, and expensive machinery to make the work simpler. The Johnson’s are fairly bursting with the desire to reach their new farm and get started and I shared in their enthusiasm. It takes a special kind of writer to illicit that kind of response from a reader I think. Hubalek did a nice job of researching the material and an even nicer job of expressing it in human terms.Read more ›
