Letters from a Rocking Chair
Through letters Jane Wilkinson describes her life as a pioneer Iowa farm lady. She was born during the Civil War and died eighty nine years later. She bore seven children, and although widowed, she became the anchor of her family. Her steady pursuit of self reliance and the importance of family and stead fastness reflected qualities which have never gone out of fashion. Her credo was life is only boring if youre bored with life, a condition she never allowed. As a child she came to Iowa in a covered wagon and her many descendants continue her legacy.
