Review:

"Ida Mary and Edith Ammons were told it was easy: you filed at the land office for a quarter-section-160 acres-lived on it eight months, then "proved up" at $1.25 an acre, and the land was yours. How "easy" it was fills the pages of Land of the Burnt Thigh (Minnesota Historical Press, 269 pp., $7.95), originally published in 1938 by Edith Eudora Kohl, the younger sister. Their story is a lively one. One look and they know they're in trouble. Plunked down on the prairie with their trunks (and a jug of water-the compassionate gift of their departing driver), they stare in panic. Section 18, Range 77W is a waterless, treeless expanse with a deserted tarpaper shack the size of a packing box. Its former owner has fled. Marooned on the plains, they blame the government: "Women should not be allowed to file on land!" -- The Nation, March 21, 1987
