Angeline “Angie” Mitchell was an adventurous young woman in the Arizona Territory in 1880.  After gaining some teaching experience in Prescott she decided to take a teaching position in the sparsely-populated Tonto Basin.  Angie’s own words describe the everyday difficulties endured by the pioneer families of the time. Her first-hand accounts of primitive living conditions, travel, encounters with Apache Indians, exploring historical ruins, and living with wild animals bring to life the reality of the hardships faced by these remarkable early settlers.
