A very interesting memoir of a young woman who married a man she barely knew, and never came to fully know, to help herself and her sisters and brothers to survive in a time when a woman could not provide on her own. A very thorough, yet never pitying, account of the immense hardship she endured attempting to eek out a survivalist living with whatever resources she had on hand.
This is an excellent look into the growth and struggles of rough early America without the fluff and grandeur that is often used to create a "romantic" past. History buffs will want to add this to their collection.
