Please see the images above for an accurate representation of what the book looks like, but...

Some pencil scribbles on the dust jacket. The dust jacket has quite a bit of wear - fading, small stains, little tiny tears. Scuffing. Etc.


With the simplicity, laughter, tears, and exuberance of an eighteen-year-old, "Nonie" Laune at eighty recalls the years of her life on the Southwest frontier.

The very young Mrs. Laune first saw the very new town of Woodward, Oklahoma Territory, in 1896, three years after her husband had set up a tent beside the strip of sand which was to be the main street.

Both the Launes helped build the new town, cherished it, loved its people, struggled with its disadvantages (never enough water, always too much wind, and sand, sand everywhere) and had all their fingers in every local activity. Indeed, Woodward may be called the principal character of this enchanting family story.

The glow of a naive charm and the buoyancy of Seigniora Laune's perennially youthful personality make this wonderfully American story of frontier life a stirring, intimate document, alive with many poignant and humorous anecdotes typifying the pride and spirit which built and sustain our nation.
