By Elinore Pruitt Stewart
"Letters of a lady Homesteader" is a frontier vintage by means of Elinore Pruitt Stewart, a widowed younger mom who permitted a suggestion to help with a ranch in Wyoming. In Stewart's pleasant choice of letters, she describes her homesteading studies to her former organization, Mrs. Coney. Stewart's captivating descriptions of labor, travels, friends, animals, land and sky have an actual believe. The West comes alive, and way of life turns into eye-catching. Stewart's writing is apparent, witty, and pleasing. transparent as a bell, concise but entire, replete with localisms and assuredly rendered frontier humor, it makes one are looking to toss the computer and reference library into the trash and flow to a couple unspoiled desolate tract. The 26 letters are short and inform approximately her lifestyles at the ranch within the early 1900s. the writer often and unnecessarily apologizes for being too wordy; she begs forgiveness for lots of "faults," like being forgetful, ungrateful, inconsistent and detached, all with out obvious reason. from time to time, language displays the racial prejudice of the time. again and again in "Letters of a lady Homesteader" Stewart makes an attempt to painting the culturally various characters she meets by means of writing their a number of dialects as they sound. After having fun with this booklet, readers could be built with an entire new view of not just lifestyles within the early twentieth century yet of the influence lady had on it.
