The author had 600 first-hand accounts of pioneering to draw from as she wrote up this early history of the state of Kansas. As she tells of homesteading on the prairie, the temperance crusade, sufferage (women voted on a state level well before 1900), schools, Indians, and slavery, she weaves in pieces from the women who actually lived it.
