Summary
Jewel Babb is an independent Anglo woman who has lived most of her eighty years in the isolated desert region near El Paso. Border Healing Woman is her story -- of her young years spent traveling the area in a covered wagon, of her marriage into a wealthy ranch family and of the family's loss of that wealth, and of her life alone after her husband died and her sons were arrested for cattle smuggling. It is the story of her management of the little land she had left -- Indian Hot Springs on the Rio Grande
