In 1911, Carrie Strahorn wrote a memoir sharing some of the most exciting events of 25 years of shaping the American West with her husband, railroad promoter and writer Robert Strahorn. Nearly ten years later, she’s finally ready to reveal the secrets she hadn’t told anyone – even herself.
Certain that writings will be found only after her death, Carrie confronts the pain and disappointment of the pioneering life with startling honesty.

Most of all she wonders, Can she ever feel truly at home in this rootless life?
