Quote:
"Great Grand Mother [...] led me into the personal lives of women who had never been asked about their stories. They had come to this wilderness to settle the land, many of them naively and, in doing so, they discovered their own capabilities. Many gave up. Others died trying to survive."
-- Anne Wheeler
