Book Description

This edition contains illustrations by N.C. Wyeth.

In 1909, a recent widow and single mother, Elinore Pruitt Stewart accepted a job as housekeeper to a wealthy cattleman in Burntfork, Wyoming. There she she filed on her own land and recorded details of her life on her small ranch. Her letters were written from 1909 to 1913 and walk the line between truth and fiction. Though not originally intended for publication, Stewart later did publish this collection of her letters in 1914.

Product Description


"The letters show how important women were in frontier development. [Elinore Stewart's] energy, good works, sense of humor, courage, common sense, and humility win our admiration."--T. A./i>--T. A. Larson "Wyoming Horizons Magazine "


"Mrs. Stewart was a woman whose nineteenth-century pioneer spirit seems to have been laced with a strong dose of twentieth-century liberation. Equally impressive is her ability to characterize the people around her."--Ann Ronald, "Western American Literature"--Ann Ronald "Western American Literature "

This was not a typical book that I would read, however, I read it because it was our book club selection. I found myself enjoying it very quickly. It is amazing how things have changed in the last 100 years. Elinore Stewart not only survived but thrived in the harsh conditions of her Wyoming homestead.

Engrossing, enlightening and educational. A pure and true story told by a pure hearted
woman. She rejoiced in coming to know and describe early settlers who surrounded
her. She loved them and they loved her. The simplest details of life on the prairie
are brought to life and will remind the reader what is of the upmost importance in
life. Family, charity, tolerance, communal support and caring and gratitude to name
just a few exemplified in this splendid journal.

A way to get the feeling of life as a woman homesteader, not always as hard a life as we have heard, but other times, much harder. This woman was quite a woman!
