Memoirs of an American Pioneer

ByDon Lehman Jr.

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
These are the memoirs of an authentic American pioneer farmer – handwritten at the age of 89 in 1907- over a century ago. The primary intent of this outpouring of reflections was to impart some lessons to his many grandchildren. His writings impart the struggles, hardships, and joys of life growing up on the untamed prairie. Intermixed in his life’s saga are vignettes of politics, day-to-day life, and religion, as he was a devout member of the Reformed Presbyterian Church. All his little tales are mixed with practical pioneer wisdom based in the Bible as well as the poems of Whittier. <p>“When a man and woman in the loving integrity of their honor and purity of their hearts unite their fortunes and live as husband and wife and start out to build a home and raise a family, it is not only their privilege but their duty to avail themselves of every reasonable faculty that will aid them in the most serious tasks that falls to the lot of mortals. A record of lives before us should be a help.”</p>
