"Ida Mary and Edith Ammons were told it was easy: you filed at the land office for a quarter-section-160 acres-lived on it eight months, then "proved up" at $1.25 an acre, and the land was yours. How "easy" it was fills the pages of Land of the Burnt Thigh, originally published in 1938 by Edith Eudora Kohl, the younger sister. Their story is a lively one. One look and they know they're in trouble. Plunked down on the prairie with their trunks (and a jug of water-the compassionate gift of their departing driver), they stare in panic. Section 18, Range 77W is a waterless, treeless expanse with a deserted tarpaper shack the size of a packing box. Its former owner has fled. Marooned on the plains, they blame the government: "Women should not be allowed to file on land!"
