Life in Prairie Land Paperback – January 10, 2012. by Eliza Woodson Burhans Farnham (Author). While detailed descriptions are not extensive, the book did not disappoint in that respect. At first I was put off by flowery passages, but as I became drawn to the author's life in this land, I thoroughly enjoyed every word. The life she describes can hardly be imagined unless you habitually seek out such historical writings. I was amazed by the life she describes, including both difficulties and pleasures.

Eliza Burhans grew up from age four in the unhappy home of foster parents. In 1835 she went to live with a married sister in Tazewell county, Illinois, where in 1836 she married Thomas Jefferson Farnham, a lawyer who soon won fame as a Western explorer. In 1844 Farnham won appointment as matron of the women's division of Sing Sing State Prison in Ossining, New York. She instituted a highly advanced regime, allowing inmates to speak to one another, which had previously been banned, and setting up a system of discussions, privileges, and useful training. Her liberal approach to penology won her numerous enemies, however, and in 1848 she was forced to resign.
