Warmly inscribed by the author to her granddaughter on the title page. From the jacket- "The pioneers who took up homesteads on the raw sagebrush land of the great Columbia Basin were men and women of real fortitude and courage. Their struggles to raise crops, with the great scarcity of water which then existed, is an epic to match that of other earlier Western pioneers."
