This third installment of Sarah Agnes Prine's "diary" finds Sarah still exhibiting a strong pioneer spirit in the Arizona Territory of 1906 and 1907. The diary format draws on historic events and the experiences of the author's great-grandmother, a cattle rancher who was widowed twice and survived Indian raids, land grabbers, railroad barons, medical quarantines, and other frontier challenges. Narrator Laura Hicks brings Sarah and her extended family and neighbors to life. Her smooth pacing and easygoing voice help listeners experience the sgruggles and triumphs that embodied the pioneers who built the Western territories into states. Listeners will admire the physical strength and emotional fortitude of the settlers who built this country. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
