The Claim by K'Anne Meinel

Anna Schmidt is too independent for a woman of the 1800’s.  Worse yet she doesn’t have a man to curb her unwomanly like tendencies.  When she takes a claim of 160 acres and then another tree claim of another 160 acres has she taken on more than she can handle?  Its work that could cripple a man, a woman alone can’t expect help or understanding when she takes this one on and willingly.  Flooding, blizzards, heat, dust, and an incredible amount of physical labor are all set to do this determined woman in.  She takes it on and through the years succeeds despite the odds, despite not having a man to depend on, showing herself and the world that this woman not only can but will make a home, a farm, a ranch on the wild prairie’s.  Follow along in her journal telling of her experiences.
