A woman's account of ranch life in Moreland, Montana in the 1880s. "The Letters here were written to friends at home by a young bride who went out with her husband immediately after her marriage. They are a faithful and unvarnished Record of a Settler's Life." The author describes the hardship of life in a new territory, her social life, and the beauty and uniqueness of the scenery and its occupants. Relatively scarce in commerce.
