Publisher's Summary

Jessie Lee Brown Foveaux was born in 1899, during the final days of the Old West. Her perfectly ordinary life spanned the greater part of the 20th century, from a childhood spent on a small farm in Missouri to a loss of innocence that included the deaths of her mother and her sweetheart. But Jessie Lee survived all this and more: a troubled marriage to an alcoholic, the trials of the Depression, and the challenges of raising eight children alone. In her memoir she recalls the hardships and the triumphs and sends a stirring message about what matters most in life: friends, honesty, love, and family.
