"New foreword and afterword by Homer Smuck"--Cover.
Summary In her autobiography, Anna J. (Frazer) Winslow recounts moving in 1873, along with her growing family, from her native Indiana to Osborne County, Kansas. There she and her husband farmed, though she also spent more and more time working as an itinerant Quaker minister, traveling through Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oregon, Oklahoma, and California. She recalled this pastoral work made her a "curiosity" to some who had never before encountered a female preacher. Her family, however, fully supported her ministry, taking over family chores in preparation for her many departures and helping to support her financially as best they could.
