A wonderful insight into one of my favorite places in the world. The author traces the natural and cultural history of the region from it's ancient geologic past to the park as we know it today. It brought back a lot of powerful memories from my time there.
Two sisters, one practical and decisive, the other sweet but easily flustered. Sarah is waiting for her Samuel to arrive so they can get married. She finds a stranger wounded and unconscious in the wood pile instead, but it is up to Mary to keep her head and help their uninvited guest. But he is not the last stranger to show up before it is all over. Sweet romance.
Every one of the stories in this book are excellent! If you look and listen carefully you will see life's lessons. I hope you will give this book a try. I just know you're going to love them too!

It is a joy to read this eclectic collection of stories and essays by fifty-four country women from the west. But you don't have to be from the west or even from rural America to enjoy this anthology.
Ankle High, Knee Deep is organized into seven categories: Fortitude, Horse Sense, Community, Self-Reliance, Memory, Resilience and Lessons. Inspiring real life stories by these hard working, strong women pack each section, and overwhelm me with admiration and respect for them.
I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of Christmas romances set on the old West. Each had its unique twist that kept me reading. Some, the plot kept me guessing, others the characters pulled me. All were good. Well-written and better than average for this genre.
