A good read about life in the American West. Doig and Kittredge are the standard bearers for memoirs set in the mountain west. This book doesn't come close -- most likely because Smith is a transplant. The landscape is described, but not felt.

Despite the silly title, this is a good literary tale of life in the Mountain West during WWI. The heroine is a well-developed character in the book. I want my daughters to read this book when they are older.
