Homesteading was a way of life for the many families living along the Kansas/Colorado Line. In this memoir, Alma Lou Plunkett, the daughter of homesteaders who married into another homesteading family, explores what life was like for those who made a living from the land from about 1906 to 1960. Relying on her memories as well as research gleaned from family stories, she delves deep into the challenges that homesteading families faced. She also explains how social and technological changes have affected the lives of farmers in rural America. The hardworking people homesteading along the Kansas-Colorado line were not as technologically advanced as the rest of the country. While life changed significantly with the introduction of electrical power and telephones, homesteaders hold onto a way of life much different from their peers. Discover what made homesteading distinctive, challenging, and rewarding by joining the author as she looks back at her family's personal history in The Kansas-Colorado Line: Homesteading Tales of Several Families.
