Twenty Miles From a Match


This is the story of the only woman living in the wilderness of northwest Nevada in 1910. It is a down-to-earth story that tells about the kindness of neighboring ranch-hands, the use of old home remedies for illness, and how a family survived during terrible winters when food was in short supply. Through it all runs a thread of humor, cheerfulness, and the ability to laugh at adversity. This autobiography by Sarah Olds is a story for everyone who has thought or dreamed about homesteading in a setting far removed from the bustling lifestyle in an urban area. It is a true story told simply and honestly with delightful humor. 13 B&W photos. Paperbound: 183 pages: 5.25 x 8"
