Rachel Calof's memoir is truly a riveting account of the hardships and life, living in a 12' x 14' shanty on the plains of North Dakota between 1894 and 1904. She spares no details in describing life as it was under the harsh winters and conditions, as well as dealing with family members who made her life very difficult with strict religious beliefs mixed with much superstitions. A book of struggle and triumph through her will to overcome, and overcome she did; a story of courage in the midst of hardship. A very realistic rendering from a first hand account.
