Twenty Miles from a Match: Homesteading in Western Nevada, by Sarah E. Olds - Foreword by Leslie Olds Zurfluh.
"Twenty Miles From a Match" is the autobiography of an indomitable woman and her family's twenty years of adventures and misadventures in a desert wilderness. Olds tells of the hardships, frustrations, poverty, and other tribulations her family suffered from shortly after the turn of the century until well into the Great Depression. Through it all, however, runs a thread of humor, cheerfulness, and the ability to laugh at adversity.
