From the Publisher

In 1916, Anna Gottormsen Hought left a comfortable life in Oslo to homestead, alone, on the windswept prairies of northern Montana. Today, at 99, her memories of the life that followed are as vibrant and alive as the twinkle in her eyes. In this book she tells her stories. Many are taken from her own journals, calendar pages, and letters.
