Footprints Under the Pines by Dawn Batterbee Miller

Footprints Under the Pines chronicles one woman’s loss of home and family and her ensuing struggle for security and survival for herself and her children in an unforgiving wilderness, where women were few and law was almost non-existent.

“Miller’s graphic depictions of life in Northern Michigan’s lumbering era make you almost wish you were there,” said reviewer Curtis Alexander, “until the tall load falls and everyone runs for their lives, or someone is sick and the medical establishment has yet to be established, or a little girl … Oops, I’d better not go there, but you should … (Alexander is editor of the magazine, “Missionary Church Today.”) Review by Joyce Minor, Columnist for Highlands Today, local supplement of Tampa Tribune.
