Every woman in the US should read this book.
As well as every man. This wonderful set of letters written by a woman homesteader back to her friend in St Louis is nothing short of amazing. And the reader does an excellent job of capturing Eleanor's spirit. Audible is terrific but at least read the book. It will open your eyes to the settlement of the West and the role played by women.

Optimistic Pioneer Woman Writes Letters to Friend
Would you listen to Letters of a Woman Homesteader again? Why?
I would, because the narrative is delightful and the writer of the letters was so upbeat, even in the face of tragedy. She found the best of every situation and was very entertaining in the process. Her letters to her friend were full of interesting details of the time period and allow the listener to understand the "pioneer spirit" we so often hear about.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, I wanted to spread it out so I could enjoy it more before the end.
Any additional comments?
Ms. Hughes did a great job as the reader. Her voice is extremely clear and her pacing was just right.
