About The Book

These Is My Words

"A nice girl should never go anywhere without a loaded gun and a big knife."

- Sarah Agnes Prine

Inspired by the author's original family memoirs, this absorbing story introduces us to the questing, indomitable Sarah Prine, one of the most memorable women ever to survive and prevail in the Arizona Territory of the late 1800s.

Rich in authentic details of daily life and etched with striking character portraits, this action-packed novel is the story of a powerful, enduring love played out against a background of fire, flood, Comanche raids and the other mortal perils that beset settlers trying to carve a life out of the harsh desert landscape.
