Nothing Daunted

New Yorker executive editor Dorothy Wickenden talks about the adventures of Dorothy Woodruff and Rosamond Underwood, who moved to the wilds of northwestern Colorado in the summer of 1916 to teach in a remote mountaintop schoolhouse. In Nothing Daunted: The Unexpected Education of Two Society Girls in the West, Wickenden—the granddaughter of Dorothy Woodruff—gives an account of their journey and experience “settling up” in the West.
