More > circumstances, Browning grew up at a time when the USA as a nation was in its infancy, with much of the population living in rural areas.

One day while she was working out in the woods it began to rain and she got the idea to build a tool shed. The tool shed ended up to be an eight by ten foot cabin in which she lived for a while.
