This lively book, now available in paperback, focuses on the women responsible for educating prairie children. Most were natives of the region, often teenaged girls away from home for the first time. Teaching under difficult circumstances, schoolwomen not only struggled to meet their students' needs but also used all the means at their disposalsummer institutes, normal schools, and even reading programs by mailto upgrade their own educational credentials.
