Natural Wonders #43

We hear more from Fran Hamerstrom, born in 1907, from her book, My Double Life, Memoirs of a Naturalist. 

This chapter is called A Letter from My Mother-in-Law, and finds her in the beginning of her time as a field biologist,  with her life long partner Fredrick, moving into a farmhouse that their professor, Aldo Leopold, had arranged for them to live in. This is  in Waushara County in the middle of winter,  with no running water, no heat except the wood stove, no electricity and no phone.
