Prairie Trails of Miz Mac
Prairie Trails of Miz Mac by author Rhonda Coy Sedgewick Stearns
The gritty, powerful, pioneer saga of Bernice Walsh McLaughlin, the first White child born North of the Bow River in Alberta, Canada. On an isolated homestead in the barren New Mexico prairie thousands of miles from her homeland, a bolt of lightning killed her husband as she and their two tiny children watched. Through death and shattered dreams she did not give up. An alien, a widow, on a homestead she did not own, she did not give up. With a keen mind, an iron will, a strong back, willing hands, a determined heart and an intense faith in God, Miz Mac and her children survived years when the only moisture their New Mexico land knew came from blood, sweat and tears. An awesome, yet very human saga, sensitively portrayed by a writer whose own ranching background lends authenticity and integrity:' Come along. Ride Prairie Trails. You will laugh and cry with Miz Mac ... and you will grow.
