I loved this memoir/chronicle of the true story of Elinore Pruitt
Stewart who set out to prove that a woman could, indeed, run a ranch in
Wyoming at the turn of the century. She is a joy and her book is a gem.
The print is larger than in many books and makes this a grand gift for
an older person.

— Julie


"Peopled with the kinds of characters most novelists only dream of"(Christian Science Monitor), this classic account of American frontier living captures the rambunctious spirit of a pioneer who set out in 1909 to prove that a woman could ranch. Stewart's captivating missives from her homestead in Wyoming bring to full life the beauty, isolation, and joys of working the prairie.
