Ottawa County, Kansas. The homesteader era. The eastern newspapers of the period promoted the Midwestern frontier as a paradise for settlers. They didn't mention the Indian raids, droughts, grasshopper plagues, and prairie fires that awaited the pioneers. 'Prairie Tapestry' tells the true tales of the visitors and homesteaders of Ottawa County, Kansas - Horace Greeley, Susan B. Anthony, George Washington Carver, and 'Lincoln's Little Girl,' Grace Bedell. The settlers confronted the numerous adversities with a tenacity and resolve that formed the American spirit of today.
