"Pioneer Woman"

Roane Deckert's avatar Roane Deckert

"Pioneer Woman" pays tribute to all the women whose courage and hard work broke barriers and led the way into the future, whether they homesteaded on the Great Plains of America's vast frontier, or are breaking new ground today with the determination to face daunting challenges and overcome obstacles from which more timid souls might turn. I think the medium, Kansas Limestone, is appropriate in as much as many of the women who settled the open prairies, such as my great-grandmothers and my paternal grandmother, become rocks of strength in the building of their communities. Certainly they were civilizing influences while they worked side by side with their men, raising children and pointing the way to a brighter future for them.
