Beschreibung

Lost for almost half a century and never before published, "When Montana and I Were Young" is a remarkable primary account of a child's life in the early part of the twentieth century. Margaret Bell (1888-1982) was a rancher and horse breaker whose memoir tells the story of a frontier childhood on the high plains of Montana and Canada. Hers was not a typical childhood. Bell was barely seven when her mother died, and her stepfather, Hedge Wolfe, moved Bell and her three younger half-sisters far from their nurturing grandmother to the Canadian plains and a life of extreme poverty, hardship, and abuse.

Pressestimmen

Winner of the Mountain West Center for Regional Studies 2002 Handcart Award "Young Margaret (Peggy) displayed a dignity and resourcefulness that rank her among even fictitious literary heroines. Indeed, her very survival was amazing... Both riveting and important, her book is a valuable addition to frontier narratives." Booklist "Bell practiced self-reliance and stoicism from an early age, and her memoir never lapses into self-pity. This powerful account belongs on the shelf of every student of pioneer history or women's history." Publishers Weekly "An unforgettable story that gives meaning to the term 'true survivor.'" ForeWord Magazine
