In Rebecca Boone: Love Makes a Home, Rebecca Boone, age 72, shares her own homespun wisdom and meaningful memories as she chops wood, cooks stew, and does her mending on a winter evening in 1811. The trail-blazing midwife didn't get the luxury of a home she could keep, but her adventures made up for what went missing. She walked through Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Kentucky before she found her final rest in Missouri. She gave birth to ten biological children and adopted six more after her child-bearing years had ended. As she weaves linen, she recalls how her husband, legendary American frontiersman Daniel Boone, spent as many as two years at a time lost in the woods. The courageous hunter also managed to lose all the family's money and land about as fast as he earned it, and it was up to Rebecca to take care of the family and teach them all to hunt and forage so they would have food and shelter, too. She had little bitterness and no guile. Blessed with a supportive family and an indomitable spirit, Rebecca revels in an evening alone as she recalls her most intriguing secrets.
