Lonesome Land

by B. M. Bower

In the harsh and unforgiving land of Lonesome, a young woman must learn to survive on her own. Lonesome Land is a novel by B. M. Bower, first published in 1912. The novel is set in the Canadian prairies, and it follows the story of a young woman named Jean Douglas who sets out to make a new life for herself on her own. Jean is a strong and independent woman, but she is also naïve and inexperienced. She soon finds herself in over her head, as she struggles to cope with the harsh conditions of the prairies. She also faces the prejudice of the local ranchers, who are not accustomed to seeing a woman working on a ranch. But Jean is determined to succeed, and she slowly begins to build a new life for herself. She learns to ride a horse, to rope cattle, and to shoot a gun. She also makes friends with the local ranchers, who come to respect her for her strength and determination.
