Idaho Experience

Introduction to "We Sagebrush Folks"

Preview: Season 2 Episode 1 | 1m 9s

Annie Pike Greenwood penned "We Sagebrush Folks," a chronicle of her struggles as a farmer's wife and teacher in Hazelton, Idaho, in the early 1900s. In contrast to myth-making descriptions of pioneer life, the memoir shines a light on the hard reality of farming in the newly irrigated "Eden" of southern Idaho.
