Western Reflections Publishing Company,2007.
Men rushed to Colorado in the late 1800s looking for gold and riches. The families they brought with them found themselves in a wilderness with only a few rough mining towns. Here is the compelling story of one pioneer woman's hardships and joys as she struggled - living in sod huts, tents, and sometimes, if she was lucky, a real log house - to keep her family alive and healthy.
