In the late 1800s many young teachers traveled West to earn money and make a new life for themselves. However, the schools were inadequate at best. Some returned home, unable to endure the hardships of prairie life, but others were more committed. Jim Murphy's Sarah Jane Price stayed, braving the rough conditions of the West and the daily tasks that ensued.

While traveling in 1883 with her Italian American family (including a meddlesome little sister) and other immigrant pioneers to a utopian community in Idaho, fourteen-year-old Teresa keeps a diary of her experiences along the way.

Good account of a Blizzard near my hometown that I knew nothing about.
Apparently, drawings were heavily used in the newspapers at the time - I didn't know that. Interesting that there were photos of the Blizzard too.
Of course, forecasting was in its infancy & the weatherman of the day were looking at a scientific approach, where the farmers and seamen would have been a whole lot more knowledgeable, if the forecasters would have listened.

This was facinating book that both described the centuries old battle against TB, but did a good job of describing the development of the medical profession.
