Product Description

We Sagebrush Folks tells the experiences of a woman of education, refinement, and culture who went with her husband to plow up wealth in the land under the then new Minidoka Irrigation Project in Southern Idaho. She writes with intelligence, a notable gift for expression, and a considerable interest in and knowledge of economics. An intimate, colorful portrayal of the daily life of the sagebrush farmers and their families, mercilessly truthful, but written with vivacity, cleverness, and humor, full of anecdotes, tales, and incidents that are often amusing, sometimes tragic, but always told with a keen sense of their dramatic values.
