Gerber, Philip L., Corey, Paul, Franklin, Wayne

SUMMARY

In July 1909 twenty-one-year-old Elizabeth Corey left her Iowa farm to stake her claim to a South Dakota homestead. Over the next ten years, as she continued her schoolteaching career and carved out a home for herself in this inhospitable territory, she sent a steady stream of letters to her family back in Iowa. From the edge of modern America, Bess wrote long, gossipy accounts-"our own continuing adventure story," according to her brother Paul-of frontier life on the high plains west of the Missouri River. Irrepressible, independent-minded, and evidently fearless, the self-styled Bachelor Bess gives us a firsthand, almost daily account of her homesteading adventures. We can all stake a claim in her energetic letters.Gerber, Philip L. is the author of 'Bachelor Bess The Homesteading Letters of Elizabeth Corey, 1909-1919' with ISBN 9780877453031 and ISBN 0877453039.
