   schema:reviewBody ""Generations of readers have delighted in Elinore Pruitt Stewart's Letters of a Woman Homesteader (1914) and Letters on an Elk Hunt (1915), which must rank among the most engaging accounts of life in the American West. Stewart related her adventures on an isolated Wyoming homestead with such vividness, gusto, and sympathy that she has become the woman homesteader. Until now however, little has been known about her except what she chose to reveal in her published letters." "Old friends and new acquaintances alike will welcome this book combining Stewart's previously unpublished or uncollected letters with Susanne K. George's extensive research. Here is as full and candid a portrait as we are ever likely to have of The Woman Homesteader: the illness, disappointments, and grinding hard work that lay behind her genial public persona; the family, neighbors, and correspondents who peopled her letter-stories and shared her life. Susanne K. George has discovered in Elinore Pruitt Stewart a story fully as rewarding as any told by The Woman Homesteader herself. In an afterword George considers Stewart's use of fictional devices and growth as a writer as well as her place in American letters."--Jacket." ;
