"[A] vibrant and engaging tale of brave settlers." (Booklist)
This book provides a little insight into social norms, marriage and land rights' struggles, of this period. It is mostly about the perseverance of women on a rugged farm in Kansas against weather and cattlemen. Great descriptive writing with some action, just not capturing enough for my taste.
