Synopses & Reviews
Through letters written by one family in post-Reconstruction Texas, Myers shows what life was like in this part of the Old West from a feminine perspective. The detailed letters of joy and struggle on the frontier remind us, Myers points out, that broad historical events... are made up of myriad ordinary lives.
