Most people have heard the expression “Even If I live to be 100 I’ll never forget…” My grandmother, Elsie, lived to be nearly 100 years old, and for her, three years of these years were just unforgettable. She left a record of those three memorable years in her diary from 1913 -1916 and in about thirty letters written home from the “new” state of Arizona. The letters reveal a drama-filled story of a vivacious, charming, young teacher who was loved both by her students and a couple of Arizona’s adventuresome young men.
I invite you to join this exciting journey with me. The links above will reveal more and more each week about Elsie’s world in the Old Wild West – so be sure to visit often!
