I read this book in hardback a while ago and find myself constantly referring to it in conversations with friends and family. My copy has been, "borrowed," so I'm looking for another for me, and another to give.

The theme of my family stories was that education, especially for women, is extremely important for themselves and their family and should be a goal worth pursuing despite great difficulty.

My father's mother, raised on a farm in the early 1900's and one of many children, obtained her degree at Cornell College, IA. My mother's grandfather had to teach himself to read, growing up on a pioneer western Wyoming ranch (1870s). As a result he assured that my mother and uncle rode their horses to a one-room school in any kind of miserable weather...and over the continental divide(1920s). At the age of twelve, my mother was boarded to relatives in the city. When she was ready to go to college, the depression had affected her family, as so many others, and a half-uncle stepped in to fund her University plus master's degree.

I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to better understand their family history and their interaction with it.
