Description
In the summer of 1916, Smith College graduates and best friends Dorothy Woodruff and Rosamond Underwood left their Auburn, New York, hometown to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, taking teaching jobs in a frontier town in northwestern Colorado. In their buoyant letters home, the two women captured the voices and stories of the ranchers, miners, mothers, children, and the other memorable people they got to know. Nearly a hundred years later, New Yorker executive editor Dorothy Wickenden—the granddaughter of Dorothy Woodruff—found the letters and began to reconstruct the women's journey. Here she expands her original New Yorker article into an intriguing and personal history.

"Wickenden has painstakingly re-created the story of how that earlier Dorothy and her friend Rosamond Underwood embarked on a brief but life-changing adventure, teaching the children of struggling homesteaders.... Wickenden lets their tale of personal transformation open out to reveal the larger changes in the rough-and-tumble society of the West ... scenes emerge with a lovely clarity"—NYTBR
