Sinossi

Thimble of Soil: A Woman's Quest for Land, Historical Letters 1854-1860
Trail of Thread Series, Book 2

Experience the terror of the fighting and the determination to endure as you stake a claim alongside the women caught in the bloody conflicts of Kansas in the 1850's.

Follow the widowed Margaret Ralston Kennedy (a relative of the author) in this second book of the Trail of Thread series, as she travels with eight of her thirteen children from Ohio to the Territory of Kansas in 1855.

Thousands of American headed west in the decade before the Civil War, but those who settled in Kansas suffered through frequent clashes between proslavery and free-state fractions that gripped the territory.

Told through her letters, Thimble of Soil describes the prevalent hardships and infrequent joys experienced by the hardy pioneer women of Kansas, who struggled to protect their families from terrorist raids while building new homes and new lives on the vast unbroken prairie.

Margaret was dedicated to the cause of the North, and while the male members of her family were away fighting for a free state, she valiantly defended their homestead and held their families together through the savage years of Bleeding Kansas.

Twelve old quilt patterns are mentioned in the letters, and the sketched designs are in the back of the book for reference.

This was the second in a three book series. I still enjoyed reading the format of letters-I am not clear if these are actual letters by the author's ancestors or just her form of writing the story. In either case it works well.
I learned allot of history that I did not know before-the pro and anti slavery wars between Missouri residents and the new Kansas area residents. the fight being to have Kansas come in as a pro slavery state.
The way the letters were written I could really feel what the homesteaders went through, fighting for their lives, growing enough food to survive the winter, and building everyone better housing. I recommend if you are interested in the history-this was a few years before the civil war

This book was written in the form of a diary (letters from Margaret to Phoebe). For those of you old enough to remember a TV show back in the 1950's (1957-62), you will appreciate this book since it takes place in the same time frame as the TV show. The author tells of the harsh conditions and hardships endured by her family. The characters are hard to keep up with, and keep straight. It is still a beautiful story. The author writes about running out of matches. Remember, matches were needed to light candles, and cook and for heat. It gives a new appreciation for the modern conveniences (necessities) we take for granted. It took weeks or month for Margaret's letters to reach Phoebe. Today, we just text, e mail or phone. What would they think?

5.0 su 5 stelle Must Read! 24 giugno 2014
Di Judi - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Absolutely one if the best historical fiction of a gripping and turbulent time in American history. More accurately, the Western expansion and settlers should factually be called "her story" because most of what we learn and study about the pioneer families, their joys, hardships, the wagon trains, travel and settling the West, comes from diaries of the women and their letters to and from their birth homes.

This book would be an excellent literature addition to a high school or advanced Middle school American History curriculum. Although fictionalized, the facts and the lives if the settlers is very accurate and the book is enthralling. It would make history come alive in a classroom.

Wonderful to read.

4.0 su 5 stelle Good record of a family who traveled across the country to settle in a new territory. 4 ottobre 2014

I loved the book Thimble of Soil and will read the other two in the series. We have a family heritage of ancestors settling in Kansas. I enjoyed the narrated story of Margaret and her journey to homestead with family in Kansas. I read so many things that I had not thought of before and am so appreciative of those who wanted a better life and endured hardships to settle in a new territory. I enjoyed her history of the nation at that time also. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes to read history of the settlers in America.

This was a good read. I bought it after reading the first book in the series, Trail of Thread. For me, this book had way too much Kansas history. The history was about the fight in the Kansas territory about slavery. I honestly didn't realize this was an issue before Kansas became a state, but there was just too much for me. I found myself skipping big chunks of the book because I got tired of reading about it. The story itself is told in letters and I did enjoy it. I just felt it was a letdown after reading the first book.
