Caroline Henderson was a Mount Holyoke graduate who moved to Oklahoma's panhandle to homestead and teach in 1907. This collection of Henderson's letters and articles published from 1908 to1966 presents an intimate portrait of a woman's life in the Great Plains. Her writing mirrors her love of the land and the literature that sustained her as she struggled for survival.
Alvin O. Turner has collected and edited Henderson's published materials together with her private correspondence. Accompanying biographical sketch, chapter introductions, and annotations provide details on Henderson's life and context for her frequent literary allusions and comments on contemporary issues.
