This book is a series of letters written from 1909 to 1913 from a Wyoming female homesteaders to her former employer. The first thing that strikes the reader is the absolute breathtaking descriptions of the Wyoming country. I just read on in amazement by the end of the introduction I felt Elinore & I were kindered spirits. My grandmother would have been her contempory. She too was this verbous. Though Elinore had only a rudimentry education & was a hurried, hard working, pioneer her letters flow as if they are penned by a great poet. All Americans should read this book that we may honor those strong souls that came before us
