"Tow re-creates the colorful pioneer life of her great-great-grandmother… Amanda L. Smith Donaldson, one of Oregon's (Tillamook County) pioneer women, in 1853 crossed the prairies, the mountains, and the rivers… She, as an only child, lost her mother in a new and turbulent land called California. Shuttled from family to family, she knew no secure home until she married an older man whom she met while working in a tavern." After the California Gold Rush, she came "with her husband to Oregon for the greatest adventure of all, homesteading and raising a family of fifteen children in the virtual wilderness of the Tillamook County area." Includes 31 pages of photographs and maps.
