True accounts of pioneer life in the 1870's and 1880's in eastern Idaho's Blackfoot River Valley. These are the author's mother's accounts in the form of letters to her father in England telling of life on the pioneer homestead. Such a correspondence did occur, but the original letters were not preserved. The letters in the volume record real incidents and actual dates as experienced, though the letters themselves have been recreated and were edited by the author's mother (Emma Just). For many years she was the only pioneer woman in this part of the country. She tells the story and describes the "life of a woman on a lonely homestead--homemade tables and chairs, childbirth without the doctor, the threat of Indian uprisings, and the joy of an occasional passing emigrant.
