In the Solomon Valley of central Kansas, homesteaders confronted droughts, Indian raids, and grasshopper plagues. 'Prairie Tapestry' tells the true tales of Horace Greeley, Susan B. Anthony, George Washington Carver, and other pioneers who struggled to make a new home on the Kansas frontier.
The final opening of the Indian lands in what is now part of present-day Oklahoma was a turbulent time. Luther and Fionna McCracken and their children sought a new beginning on the Medicine Bundle Grasslands, hoping to escape past unhappiness. Instead, they found themselves caught up in a struggle against both the law and lawless they couldn’t ignore if they were to make their dreams a reality.
