It was interesting to read these letters and get an idea of what life was like in the West over 130 years ago. The author of the letters, the Army officer's wife, loved to ride horses. She also describes a lot of hunting and fishing. There was no neighborhood grocery store. They had to send to St. Louis for supplies. Travel did get easier when trains became more available. The book ends with a description of a visit to Salt Lake City. She also describes a visit to Yellowstone National Park earlier in the book.

My late mother gave me this book many years ago, and I have finally gotten around to reading it.

This book was left in the Little Free Library. It was released for the June Brides 2023 release challenge.
