Annotation In this autobiographical account of the early American West, the author shares her experiences as a pioneer settler in the area around the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota in the early 1900s. When they arrived, all that greeted Edith and her sister was a single, 10x12 wooden shack located in the middle of nowhere--and soon the harsh realities of surviving in this barren landscape set in. Ultimately, other settlers arrive as she and her sister meet Sioux Indians living nearby, start a newspaper, trading post, school and post office--all while homesteading themselves.
