I have dearly enjoyed listing to this and it has neen such a comfort. My grandmother was a homesteader and she was the smartest hard working honestly greatest woman I have been blessed to have taught me how to live. So many of the letters read in this series is just like sitting down to listen to my Grandmother or Great Grandmother"s. I am 55 but this brings the best of my life back to life. Not many women like myself or grandma are around to teach a new generation of women you can go it on your own. And as my Grandmother always said a woman needs only a few things in life to survive. 1.- A well stocked tool box. 2.- A bank account to save money in. 3.- Keep your wits about you. Never panic.
