The Plow-Woman

by Eleanor Gates

A cross-grained, crippled ex-section boss of a Texas railroad, and an unreconciled Confederate, immigrates with his two daughters to North Dakota, opposite a military post. the oldest daughter, Dallas, is the plow-woman, and she at once begins to cultiave the virgin fields for her incompentent father and sister. They have much trouble with Indians and land grabbers, during all of which the plow-woman grows more competent, more lovable, and more womanly. A good picture of Western "shack" life and marvelous railroad building "just after the war."
