Some comments about this story: Short stories of everyday life during the expansion west of the Mississippi by scouts, prospectors, farmers, and families seeking a better life, hunters, ne’er-do-wells, etc., gave richness and sadness into the ownership of open land cared for and respected by the Native Americans. Glimpses of that period are given to readers through the diligent work done by John Wiskus. This reader appreciates that effort. —Betty “Beto” Carlson, Los Alamos, New Mexico Is a delightful book for all age groups. Tells of a time when America was just beginning to expand its horizons in the west part of the US. The book shows the hardships of paddle wheelers and other people on the river. Thanks, John Wiskus, for a book that has appropriate language. I hope everyone enjoys it as I did. Thanks, John. —Becky Messer, Grafton, North Dakota This book tells of family life in an age past. Being an avid reader and history buff, it reminds me of stories and events that my grandmother told me about during her lifetime. It is my hope that readers enjoy the book as much as I did. Thanks, John! —Jonna H. Wishek-Hochhalter, Wishek, North Dakota
