The only book I purchased at the Western History Association conference in Tucson in October was, Kate Rice Prospector by Helen Duncan. I usually buy more, but I was packing light for my Southwest Airlines flight.
Kathleen Rice was born in St. Mary’s, Ontario, Canada in 1882. Closer to her father than her mother, she grew up loving the outdoors. A real beauty, she became well-educated at the encouragement of her father. She loved college and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1906 with a major in math.
