Did you ever wounder what your ancestor's lives were like? This is an account of an actual family that homesteaded in Nebraska in the19th century. They struggled through a prairie fire, blizzards, dust storms and opposition to their very existence. Although they lived on borrowed money most of the time and squeezed every penny, they were able to increase their land holdings. The original 160 acre homestead evolved into a ranch of more than7,000 acres 60 years later. Actual local area history is woven into this family's lives during six decades. Such as the time Buffalo Bill went to Rushville to recruite Indians for his Wild West Shows. Included is the effect upon the family of the massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890. The Furman and Jackson families are true. Also, Buffalo Bill, Jules Sandoz, and Jim Asay were actual people. All other names are fictitious.
