After her teenage daughter Mia falls in with the wrong crowd, Dr Billy Green decides it's time to leave the city and return home to far western NSW. So when an opportunity to pursue her childhood dream of joining the Flying Doctor Service comes along, she jumps at the chance. Flight nurse Daphne Prince - who is thrilled to have another woman join the otherwise male crew - and handsome new boss, Morgan Blake, instantly make her feel welcome. Just out of town, drought-stricken grazier Soretta Byrnes has been struggling to make ends meet and in desperation has opened her station house to boarders. Tempted by its faded splendour and beautiful outback setting, Billy, Mia and Daphne decide to move in and the four of them are soon joined by eccentric 80-year-old Lorna Lamerton. The unlikely housemates are cautious at first, but soon they are offering each other frank advice and staunch support as they tackle medical emergencies, romantic adventures and the challenges of growing up and getting older. But when one of their lives is threatened, the strong friendship they have forged will face the ultimate test . . .

Homestead, first published in 1910 as one volume in the classic Pittsburgh Survey, describes daily life in a community that was dominated economically and physically by the giant Homestead Works of the United States Steel Corporation. Homestead, just across the Monongahela River from Pittsburgh, developed as a completely separate city - a true mill town settled by newer immigrants and shaped in its attitudes by the infamous Homestead Strike of 1892.

Hannah is a fifteen-year-old Amish girl who lives on her family’s farm in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. When her family, hit hard by the Great Depression, loses their farm, Hannah’s father decides it’s time for a fresh start. Destitute but inspired by grand plans and dreams of a better future west of Lancaster, he loads his family and what little they have left into their covered wagon. They settle in North Dakota, hundreds of miles from any Amish community. But things aren’t going quite as Hannah’s father had imagined—his visions of success are shattered by the reality that his knowledge of farming in Lancaster isn’t of much use in Midwestern soil. With the fields barren and her family on the verge of starvation, independent and stubborn Hannah is forced to seek help from charismatic ranch hand Clay Jenkins and his family. Clay is drawn to the independent, strong-willed newcomer who is unlike any girl he’s ever known. Hannah grapples with her own feelings for Clay, an English boy. Her life is more uncertain than ever. With Hannah’s help, will her family get back on their feet and prosper in North Dakota? And what will happen with Clay Jenkins?

This E-Girls Entrepreneurial Women guide comes from my personal experiences gained in starting nine businesses, including sole proprietorships, four corporations, and one limited liability company. I began my first business in 1979. I want to show women how they can start building their dream business wherever they are in their life. It is my goal to give them the advice they need to know as to where to start, how to dig deep to understand their goals, understand the potential earning power of their business ideas, how to change gears when things demand change, and how to avoid pitfalls. They need to incorporate a team of experts that provide them with knowledge that they may not currently have to keep them from wasting time and money. I present some of the real core issues that will help or hinder them, such as understanding and controlling credit, estate planning, business ownership, structures of different businesses, how to find what they need, traveling tips, and so forth. I encourage them to "keep their own counsel" and have faith in themselves and God. I encourage women to reach out to other women either ahead of them in the journey or following in their footsteps, to reach back and give a helping hand to another woman coming in her shadow who needs an "E-girlfriend's" encouragement to follow her own dream. The most important key for all of this to come to fruition is their faith in God to make their dream happen. Their goal must be bigger than making money. They must have a drive to see a goal become reality, and it needs to be true in their hearts.

Excerpt from Two Wyoming Girls and Their Homestead Claim: A Story for Girls A fierce gust of wind and rain struck the windows, and Jessie, on her way to the breakfast table, dish in hand, paused to listen. Raining again I she exclaimed, setting the dish down emphatically. It seems to me that it has rained every day this spring. When it hasn't poured here in the valley, it has more than made up for it in the mountains. You are more than half right, father said, drawing his chair up to the table. Is break fast ready, dear? I am going to work in the mines to-day, and I'm in something of a hurry. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
