Sagebrush Homesteads.

Sagebrush Homesteads. Laura Tice Lage (1896-1985) opens her tale in 1906 when, as a child of ten, she arrives with her parents to begin a new life near the fledgling town of Othello, Washington. Like their neighbors, who in any direction live less than a mile away, the Tice family invests far more in the shallow, thirsty, blowdust soil of eastern Washington’s Adams County than its precarious promise warrants.

Thank you for this book which I will read again and again. My mom's family lived very close by and were wheat farmers along with many other relatives in the area. Her family would have been proud that a book was written on the trials and good times they went through. Pictures were great addition also, really brought back things I was told on life in those days.

This is a glimpse into American history and life on a homestead.

It was so much fun reading this book because it contained stories about my great grandfather, Robert Chavis and my great grandmother, Nettie Chavis, who is credited for naming the city of Othello, Washington. It was very interestig reading about life in the early 1900's in Eastern Washington. I highly recommend this book.

I'm glad Laura Tice wrote and told us her memories of growing up in the very dry eastern Washington - Othello and the Columbia basin area. I live in Oregon just on the west side of the Cascade and just like Washington everything east of the cascades is dry. I can not imagine, especially in those days, setting up house on waterless land to where you have to haul water in in order to drink, cook, wash your clothes etc.. What a stressful slog that must of been.

WHY?
Must of been all land next to a water source was already taken. Maybe it was to expensive. Why didn't they go further west? I don't recall her explaining that. Maybe I missed it.
