The life of a homesteader was a challenging one! With little more than an ox or work horse, a plough, cart, and one’s own hands, homesteaders carved out a living on the open plains. Dust storms, blizzards and grasshoppers all took their toll. Many homesteaders gave up; however, Motherwell and his family persevered.
