My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this quiet story of Rachel DuPree. Set in the early 1900's, it starts with Rachel working as a cook in a boardinghouse in Chicago and follows her life as she gets married and she and her husband stake a claim and move to the Badlands of South Dakota. It is a wonderful glimpse into the African American homesteaders and what they endured.
