These 26 letters were written by Stewart to a former employer between 1909 and 1913. Her articulate letters are a vivid recollection of life in southwestern Wyoming, with its grand, magnificent scenery and colorful inhabitants. Burns's reading expresses the warmth and humanity of these letters to the listener. Her style of reading has a staccato quality that conveys Stewart's wonder and excitement. The many immigrants' accents (Scottish, German, Irish) are done well and enhance these lively accounts. When finished, the listener will have heard the remarkable reminiscences of a woman who struggled, suffered, overcame and delighted in the varied experiences of everyday life.
