Mrs. Woody's Trunk Full of Memories

    Improve listing Presented by

Montana pioneer, Sarah Elizabeth Woody moved west and found herself at the forefront of the birth of a community and the state of Montana. As a wide-eyed young woman, she couldn’t know what life had in store for her. Join Mrs. Woody as she sifts through her old travel trunk. Each item sparks a poignant memory of a life well lived. Mrs. Woody ruminates on the wagon-train journey from Iowa to California, her time as a frontier-school teacher, and her marriage to Frank H. Woody, Missoula’s first mayor, in a small cabin in the burgeoning village of Missoula. There are tales of joy, sorrow, pain and pleasure. Mrs. Woody shares life lessons with wit and wisdom.
