Oh How Can I Keep on Singing?: Voices of Pioneer Women

'“Jana Harris has written an accurate and moving account of pioneer life a hundred years ago in Washington state. The varied voices of farmers, Indian women, miners, laundresses, and school teachers tell their own harsh stories, unforgettably.” —Annie Dillard, author of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek   “The work of Jana Harris is unique in American writing. She has always had a voice of true grit—sometimes harsh, sometimes funny, always close to the bone, tart, and indomitable. . . . Brimful of life, death, and more life, Oh How Can I Keep on Singing? is a wonderful book.” —Alicia Ostriker, poet and author of Stealing the Language   “These heart-stopping narratives combines the thickness of authenticity, the lyricism of daring, and love, the magic ingredient, into a nourishing whole. Read and be fed.” —Maxine Kumin, former US poet laureate   “A remarkable attempt to give voice to a group of women who have dropped out of history. . . . Harris has combined the resources of the poet and the scholar into something new.” —Marge Percy, author of Gone to Soldiers'
