Determined Women, a creative nonfiction work in progress, tells the story of Icka Eilert Buss, an Ost Friesian of meager resources who emigrated to the American prairies with three toddlers and an infant. She built a cabin, busted sod, planted, harvested and eventually became a successful and respected farmer. One hundred years later, her great granddaughter, Marolyn Dale Miller, inspired by her story, took her three children into Wyoming's mountain wilderness to camp and build a log house with hand tools. Despite societal disapproval and the daunting tasks before them, both women perservered to accomplish their dreams. They were two of thousands whose actions and examples changed a society and a nation.
