In 1909, Elinore Rupert, a widow with a two-year-old daughter, took a job as cook and housekeeper for a cattle ranch in Wyoming, a beautiful but wild and rugged place peopled with trappers, cowboys, European immigrants, and outlaws. In her adventures on the frontier she found a husband, saw birth and death, triumphs and trials, meeting whatever came her way with a smile.
She described it all in letters which are extraordinary for their appreciation of the everyday blessings: home, good food, family and friends; hoping to give her invalid friend, "as nearly as I could - a true picture of the West." Enhanced with sound effects and period music.
America has a remarkable, but largely unknown, legacy of strong, intelligent, Christian womanhood. In "Voices from the Past," Victoria Botkin will take you back to original source documents, enhanced by sound effects and period music, breathing life into the very words of real heroines of American history.
Elinore Stewart, Victoria Botkin
