About Raising the West

Raising the West is filled with a thousand years of wisdom. Twelve women share their experiences growing up in the 1930s; from attending one-room country schools to weathering terrible storms, facing deadly childhood illnesses, surviving periods of financial hardship, playing with paper dolls, raising children, maintaining marriages for fifty years or more, and making a life and a living in Wallace County. Raising the West encapsulates countless life lessons and showcases the changes a hundred years can bring.
