Wickenden’s pioneer story follows two Smith graduates (one the author’s grandmother) who headed out to tiny Elkhead, Colorado, in 1916. Eschewing high society for a community of homesteaders and a rough-hewn schoolhouse, the women faced blizzards, ruffians, and illness, but persevered, preserving their experiences in the letters home that richly illuminate this book.
