Published by iUniverseBooks
In the 1940s outside Glenrock, Wyoming, Julie Bruns knew she would have to work hard if she expected to make her living on a homestead. At the end of a long, hard day, her tired muscles would ache, but Julie would persevere—for she was truly a pioneer. In her posthumous memoir, Bruns shares a fascinating description of day-to-day life in the wilds of Wyoming as she changed history forever and became one of the state’s few female homesteaders.Bruns tells how she overcame her initial fears and embarked on a new venture with a strong determination and an honest heart. After deciding to file a homestead, Bruns details how she selected a site along a tiny creek and began constructing a cabin out of green-cut, peeled logs. The days were filled with hard work, and the nights were frightening as owls hooted and coyotes yapped. But Bruns persisted—building much of her furniture, exploring the land around her house, and getting to know her neighbors.I Live in a Beautiful World shares the inspiring story of how Julie Bruns became a homesteader through resolve, courage, and, most importantly, the unyielding desire to make her dream come true.
