This book is about Laurel Keyes own experiences growing up on a high plains ranch, and stories of those family members, friends and neighbors from whom she learned decency, kindness, strength and character. Those pioneers could not have been plunged into a vast, rugged land of beauty and hardship without courage and drama having been a part of their lives, and often they held secrets which were revealed only through death. Laurel writes of rich and passionate stories of courage and hope in a most difficult and wonderful period of our history. She gives credit not only to the valiant spirit of the majority of the people, especially the women, who came West and lived here, but to help you recapture the feeling of the world they knew their sufferings and endurance, their humor and faith, the every-day living which brought people from oxen-drawn covered wagons to men on the moon in less than one century. The most incredible century in all history, the most discoveries, innovations, fantastic developments which we accept today as a springboard into an even greater futureâ began with people such as these.
