What happened on a normal day to a normal young woman in 1891? Step inside the world of 25-year-old Viola Coolbaugh as she lives her life in rural Schuyler County.
Viola writes of the happenings in Altay, New York - her housework, baking pastries for her father's store, terrible sicknesses, working at the basket factory, and making ice cream with hailstones.
