Hope Amid Hardship
Pioneer Voices From Kansas TerritoryeBook - 2013
Why did Kansas's earliest settlers leave their homes and forge new lives on its prairies? Why did they stay? Despite the challenges of loneliness, drought, and political turmoil Kansas pioneers faced, many found and wrote about joy and beauty in their adopted communities. Letters and diaries describe the times that gave them reason to sing, dance, and celebrate--moments when their burdens were lighter. This beautifully illustrated volume brings together reflections of sixty individuals of different ages, backgrounds, and outlooks who helped shape the identity of the Sunflower State.
