Read full description of the books:



This is an AMAZING story that was almost completely lost! Helga and her daughter WALK across the United States in 1896 in order to win $10,000 to pay their mortgage and save their farm. The fact that she left 7 children at home (the youngest was 2yrs) with her husband (recovering from injury) shows how desperate she was to save the farm, but also what an independent courageous woman she was. Stepping out of the cultural norms of acceptable female behavior at the time put her in the midst of some of the most well known political and social upheavals our country has seen.

The story of the walk is amazing. What makes this book unforgettable is the fact that the story was almost lost because of Helga's family's reaction to her trek. Reading this book will make you think about stories in your own family. It will make you wonder if there are missing stories that need to be told. It will give you a greater appreciation for how each person's story adds to our collective history and how important it is to share the easy and painful stories. This book made me appreciate my own personal history and the personal histories that make up my country.
