Book Cover
Pub. Date:
In the late 1870s, many young teachers traveled West to earn money and make a new life for themselves. However, the schools were inadequate at best, and many teachers returned home, unable to endure the hardships of prairie life. But Sarah Jane Pryce stayed, braving the rough conditions of the West.
