Courage, this is the American heritage, the basic quality possessed by those who left city and county of birth to settle an unknown land. Courage, as existent today as in pioneer times, takes many forms. In these fifteen stories, some are engaged in fierce battles against the elements: blizzards, fire, flood, and the devastating destruction of a tornado. Others must take a stand against people who oppose them, from the school bully to hostile Indians. The last form of courage, though not the least important, represents the inward struggle of a person trying to hang on to a dream, or of one attempting to rise above an inward flaw and make a new start. All deal with the interwoven pattern of family, community, and self and come together as Homespun Courage.
