Since it was first published in 1932 A Frontier Lady has held a high and special place in the literature of Americas westward migration Written in the 1880s at the reuest o. It was fine For a book that was 130 pages finishing this book was like pulling teeth This book has three separate prefaces all disclaiming the reader that Royce did not write the book with the intention it would ever be published she wrote it for her son a Harvard professor All three prefaces discuss the importance of Royce s faith and the stream of consciousness writing style The third preface goes so far as to say that if the reader doesn t read this through the lens of an intimate retelling for her son much of the magic will be lost I definitely found this to be true as there are uite a few parts of this book that would be important to me if the author was my mother but because she is not I was freuently bored There are parts of this book that are hard to read due to the author s prejudice against the native peoples she encounters on her journey I understand this was nearly 200 years ago and I understand the perceived possible danger of many of these such encounters But in any of the three prefaces or the epilogue I would have appreciated a reflection on this rather than the repeated sentiment of she didn t intend to publish this I understood that she was speaking plainly and without filter because of that But one of the prefaces was written by the publisher and I m sorely disappointed they didn t do a better job of addressing it The actual book was fine Her retellings are deeply overlaid with Proper Lady Speak and so much of the vibrancy is diluted in my opinion There are moments of greatness where her wonder peeks through the veil and those are the best parts of the book I wish the entire book was that way but it was not Unfortunately I was extremely bored at moments that should have been anything but boring this is why I decided on 2 stars instead of 3 as I did find the content interesting enoughThis was a disappointment to me Oh well
