Margy, a self-assured Kansas farm girl searching for independence, is disappointed when her plans to attend college fail to materialize. Picking herself up, she sets out to start a new life in the Oklahoma Territory as a teacher in a country school, but never forgets her dream of pursuing a higher education. This intriguing historical novel traces Margys life in the early days of Oklahomas settlement -- the land rush, the oil boom, statehood and the Great Depression. Margy faces joy and tragedy alike with the resilience and stoicism of Scarlet OHara.
