THE MARTINS OF GUNBARREL by Mildred Albert Martin


Email this review


Another wilderness wife reports in- and it is an account of her adjustment to a primitive life after a runaway marriage with Earl who has a dude ranch near Yellowstone. With a Navajo blanket as a wedding present, and a trousseau bought at a men's clothing store, she was to face even fewer refinements during the long winter ahead- with almost no companionship except Earl, a man of few words. There's quite a bit on the limitations of the housekeeping; on learning to be alone; on doing without even special attention when she finds out she is pregnant; on cooking for strangers- and, in the summer, guests; and on the general mechanics and management of dude ranching and camping in the summer months.... Real plain- but the human interest is there.
