This non-fiction story of pioneer life in the Washington Territory, in the late 1800s and early 1900s, is so representative of hundreds, if not thousands, of pioneer farmers who endured the same toil, the same droughts, and the same tragedies. The text, much of which is taken from authentic journals, letters, and interviews, describes the struggles and hardships of the pioneer, the politics and economics of a newly settled West, as well as a heart-wrenching experience of the death of a beautiful child. A must read for students & historians interested in the homesteading era of the western U.S.!
