Exuding poise, a warm heart, and a profound reverence for nature, Margaret Duncan Brown's memoir is a soul-bolstering inspiration—and an absolute charmer. Longing for independence, Brown and her husband, Dick, bought an old ranch in rural Colorado in 1915. Dick died of influenza three years later, but the indomitable Margaret defied expectations by staying on alone, successfully tending their cows, and then her sheep, for forty-seven more years. Her eloquently recorded daily thoughts, struggles, and triumphs serve as a gift of wisdom, resilience, and grace for the modern reader.
