Daughter of the Land by Gene Stratton-Porter
Book DescriptionKate Bates is another Gene Stratton-Porter unsung hero in the tradition of Elnora Comstock, of "A Girl of the Limberlost", and "Freckles and Laddie", of books of the same name. As the youngest child, and female, in a large prosperous farm family, she has been designated as her mother's helper in old age. Kate finds this unfair since all of the brothers have been given land and the older sisters sent to teacher training. With the help of a nephew and sister-in-law, she defies her parents, becomes a teacher, leaves home. Her real ambition, however, is to own and cultivate a large farm. After rejecting the easy path to her dream, she suffers through a bad marriage but ultimately acquires her land and achieves happiness.
