Saturday, September 17th at 2pm, Maine author, Eleanor Phillips Brackbill will read from her book The Queen of Heartbreak Trail, the Life and Times of Harriet Smith Pullen, Pioneering Woman. The story of her early life, from her childhood journeys by covered wagon to her family’s subsistence in sod houses on the Dakota prairie where they survived grasshopper plagues, floods, fires, blizzards, and droughts is a narrative of American migration and adventure that still resonates today. But there is much more to the legendary woman’s life, revealed here for the first time by Eleanor Phillips Brackbill, her great-granddaughter, who has traveled the path of her ancestor, delving into unpublished material, as well as sharing family stories in this American story that will capture the imagination of a new generation
