Alice, a spinster teacher in the South, decided to pack up and travel to Oregon to teach and homestead. This book takes the reader through this trip with her. She had a strength and great hope for her success in a new state doing a difficult job on her own. "They've got the Project look. It's strange, the look; it's hope, I suppose." p.31 The book is a quick and delightful read.
