STUMP RANCH PIONEER by Neils Portray Davis


Email this review


There are still frontiers, and this is a story of modern pioneering, in a record of ingenuity and resourcefulness of a Colorado family in northern Idaho's panhandle. Driven from their prairie ranch and dreams by the dust years, the author, her husband, son and adopted daughter buy a 40-acre timberland with a house on it and clear the land, make a home, and retain their independence in good pioneer tradition. This is the story of living on the land, raising goats, learning about timber, fires, 4-H work for the children, community activities -- a five year span of life in the round. Good.
