In the summer of 1916, Dorothy Woodruff and Rosamond Underwood, society girls bored with their world of charity events, left New York for the wilds of northwestern Colorado. Taking the new railroad to a family of homesteaders they trekked to school each day on horseback, through sun, rain, and blizzard.
Transforming the children, their families, and the undaunted teachers themselves, Dorothy and Rosamond learned how to handle children who had never heard the Pledge of Allegiance and thought local man Ferry Carpenter was the president of the United States.
In their buoyant letters home, the two women captured the voices and stories of the pioneer women, the children, and the other memorable people they got to know. An exhilarating saga about two intrepid young women and the 'settling up' of the West. 286 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.
