“This is the biography of two spunky young Smith graduates who, in the early part of the last century, bucked the trend and society's expectations and hired on as school teachers in a remote area of Colorado. The history and period detail is compelling and brings to life the hardships and courage of the Colorado settlers and the bright and brave spirits of Dorothy Woodruff and Rosamond Underwood. I wish I'd known them!”
— Cathy Langer, Tattered Cover Book Store, Denver, CO
