A biography of Ruth Marie Colville. A story of persistence and perseverance, of achieving dreams, fostering inquisitiveness, and overcoming fear through positive action. On a larger scale, it is a story of the meeting and mixing of cultures in America. The culture of the Victorian East met the more open culture of the West, and the Anglo culture met with the Hispanic culture in the San Luis Valley of Colorado.
If we learn the lessons of Ruth Marie's life, it is possible that we, too, will find ourselves rediscovering an old interest at fifty, creating a new interest at sixty-five, expanding our circle of friends at eighty, and reaching a life-ling dream at nine-two.
