ELINORE PRUITT STEWART (1876-1933) caused a literary sensation in 1914 when her Letters of a Woman Homesteader was published. A self-educated pioneer in southwest Wyoming, she wrote letters to keep her mind busy amidst the hard physical labor of carving a home out of wilderness, and to keep her friendships fresh in that remote place In this followup of the next year, Stewart's missives are short stories in themselves, letters written about events in the summer and fall of 1914 and intended for later publication, as those of her first collection were not. The joy of Stewart's writing is in the perceptive eye she turns on her neighbors and their fortunes and misfortunes: scraping up money to buy a coffin and tombstone for a beloved mother, digging wells for thirsty horses, making bonnets and kitchen curtainHIS036041s to beautify a harsh environment, rekindling a romance between a couple long estranged, and more. A classic of pioneer life, this delightful book continues to enthrall readers today, nearly a century as it was written.

Grade 3-6-- Another informative, appealing book in the series, this one is about the smallest American elk, at one time almost extinct. Arnold describes the elks' life span, habitat, food, enemies , and reproduction. The large, full-color photographs extend and clarify the text, such as pictures of the elk during mating season and of one hiding a new - born elk in the grass. This book concentrates on the one kind of elk and has more illustrations than Ahlstrom's The Elk (Crestwood, 1985), but, as much of the information is the same, purchase will depend the need for information on elk. For libraries that don't have the Ahlstrom book, Arnold's is by far the superior choice. --Margaret C. Howell, West Springfield Elem . Sch . , VA
