The acclaimed and captivating true story of two restless society girls who left their affluent lives to “rough it” as teachers in the wilds of Colorado in 1916. In the summer of 1916, Dorothy Woodruff and Rosamond Underwood, bored by society luncheons, charity work, and the effete men who courted them, left their families in Auburn, New York, to teach school in the wilds of northwestern Colorado. They lived with a family of homesteaders in the Elkhead Mountains and rode to school on horseback, often in blinding blizzards. Their students walked or skied, in tattered clothes and shoes tied together with string. The young cattle rancher who had lured them west, Ferry Carpenter, had promised them the adventure of a lifetime. He hadn’t let on that they would be considered dazzling prospective brides for the locals. Nearly a hundred years later, Dorothy Wickenden, the granddaughter of Dorothy Woodruff, found the teachers’ buoyant letters home, which captured the voices of the pioneer women, the children, and other unforgettable people the women got to know. In reconstructing their journey, Wickenden has created an exhilarating saga about two intrepid women and the “settling up” of the West.

In 1922 Isobel Miller was a senior at the University of British Columbia -- beautiful, talented, popular -- and so miserable that she wanted to die. In her despair she began a search that was to last a lifetime: the search to know God. Her investigation led to the Bible and to Jesus Christ, and one day God gave her the desire to share what she had learned with the Lisu tribe in southwest China. Ten years passed before Isobel and her husband were finally sent to the Lisu's mountain wilderness. She grew to love the people dearly, and in her adventurous life she experienced the challenges of pioneer living, the perils of war, and the joys of proving the faithfulness of God. - Back cover.
