Summary
"Pioneering on the Mexican border, in a story of Texas. It is a saga of dust and grit, of pretty determined Willy, never basted by circumstances, who takes over the homesteading of their ranch when her husband, Pat, is crippled, and gives way to drink. She copes with drought -- then moves to the Rio Grande valley during an irrigation boom. She sets up a grocery store, makes a go of it, helps coordinate the new town of Mission. But when Pancho Villa stirs things up across the border, the town is raided now and again, Willy has a miscarriage, loses her husband and her youngest child, but grimly determines to stay on and see it through. A sound, realistic story of rough times and a pioneer woman"--Kirkusreviews.com
