Description: This tale of two sisters courageously homesteading on the prairie in 1907 provides a lively portrait of frontier life. "Mrs. Kohl has told this story of South Dakota with a simplicity, a directness, and an understanding of its quietly heroic element which make her book an appealing as well as a significant contribution to the latter-day history of the pioneers."-Saturday Review
