9781465374417: Jennie's Tiger: A Woman's Pioneering Stand in an Untamed Corner of Washington State: A Woman's Pioneering Stand in an Untamed Corner of Washington State

The West s pioneering experience has been both documented and dramatized enough to give us all some impression for right or for wrong of what pioneers were and what they did Some of those impressions are dryly accurate and some are excitingly fictitious Jennie s Tiger is neither carefully researched and truthfully told it gives a reliable view of the homesteading experience as well as an engrossing and moving story of strong characters making for themselves the life they want The real Wes and Jennie Wooding homesteaded 160 acres on the Pend Oreille river in northeast Washington state from 1900 till 1923 Life before this chapter of their lives had been consistently hardscrabble and sometimes tragic Building their own home on their own land was the greatest success and the greatest contentment they had ever had They arrived at Tiger s Landing by steamboat with three small boys and cut down enough trees to build a 14 X 24 one story house to shelter them In that house named Hawthorn Lodge they soon added a fourth boy Like most settlers with no cash Wes had to work outside to earn the money for Proving Up the homestead He walked several hundred miles looking for the work he knew in the mines A devoted member of the Western Federation of Miners and a sincere Socialist Wes was ambivalent about the Wobbly movement and glad when after the required seven years he could stay at home and make his life at Tiger s Landing with Jennie and the boys While Wes was away Jennie was entirely capable of sheltering feeding clothing and raising the boys with her own skills With help from the children she chinked the cabin with river mud she kept the table laid with game and fish she provided and produce she grew she made furniture for the bare house she skillfully sewed clothes for the family She gradually turned the subsistence farm into a lucrative business Fearful of missing Wes s letters she started the first post office in her community As th

About the Author:

Eva Gayle Six lives with her husband near the Pend Oreille River in Washington - in fact, on land once homesteaded by Jennie and Wes Wooding. After teaching at the local high school for 25 years, raising three children, and spending another 10 years developing an empty school into a stunning arts center, she found in retirement time to speculate about a lot of things - including about the people who might have lived on and walked in the same fields and woods she did. When Jennie Wooding's memoir fell into her hands, she pursued Jennie's history, and wrote this book about one period in the life of this remarkably strong and capable woman who represents the best of our forebears who settled our beautiful West. She has had articles published in NOSTALGIA MAGAZINE and in COLUMBIA, the publication of the Washington State Historical Society.
