In those days Iowa was turning from the flax- and wheat-growing of pioneer days to the production of oats and corn and hogs. She went to a small schoolhouse, just as do Lynnie and Gwen. She, too, had a Cornish pony, for all her forebears came from Cornwall, England". then a professor "she is still interested in farming. But she writes of the Iowa prairie - a lovely land in the fall and spring, a terrifying land in winter storms and summer cyclones. To her it is a rich and beautiful country which has bred a sturdy people who love its prairies." From dw flap.
