Join your Sisterhood friends as we discuss “Rachel Calof’s Story: Jewish Homesteader on the Northern Plains” by Rachel Calof.

In 1894, eighteen-year-old Rachel Bella Kahn traveled from Russia to the United States for an arranged marriage to Abraham Calof, an immigrant homesteader in North Dakota. Rachel Calof’s Story combines her memoir of a hard, pioneering life on the prairie with scholarly essays that provide historical and cultural background and show her narrative to be both unique and a representative Western tale. Her narrative is riveting and candid, laced with humor and irony.
