"The story of the remarkable experiences of an equally remarkable girl. You will read about her childhood in old Williamsburg, the capital of colonial Virginia; how she set out from Virginia in the early days with a great basket of lunch for Arizona to teach Indians, and about her meeting on the train with Carrie Nation. You will read about her other adventures -- teaching the proud Navaho Indian boys and girls; of sandstorms, trials and tribulations, festivities, romance, and a trunk from home. You will re-live with her a tragedy in Spring. You will see with her the Sky Falls, sand paintings, revolt, and the splendor and awe of the mighty Colorado."
