Civilizations are built one village at a time. It follows that the story of each village, and of each component in that village, is in microcosm that of the largest civilization of which it is a part. Each story becomes therefore the image of the greater epic we call history. This is the story of one library in one such village, a desert settlement in America's last frontier, small but growing, crude but groping toward cultural and intellectual viability--a village nearing the defining point in all frontier evolution. It is, in short, the story of a fistful of pioneer women--a junto who planted a library amid a thorn patch of saloons, and of the tradition they planted which continued through the strains and challenges of war and Depression and growing pains from bare survival to flourishing expansion. It is a quintessential American success story. 34 pages.
