My mother sat looking out at the prairie grasslands as they were nearing their color change. Amber to green was the transformation that signaled the coming of spring. My mother Gail Mercer sat and waited as she had done for eight months, for Eustace Mercer and her boys to appear home. My father and brothers departed on a cattle drive in September before the snow fell and never returned. I stopped expecting their homecoming months earlier but my Mother stuck to her dreams. The year was 1902 and my Father worked hard to procure the land on which we lived. I was no longer Ella Mercer the carefree big sister; I had become mother to my two young sisters (five and six) and caretaker of my frail Mother. I was also the sole caretaker of a large piece of land, three cows, six chickens, one rooster, three pigs and a small ranch house.
“We’re ready to go milking Ella. Ruby and I are going to race to see who can fill their bucket the fastest. You’re welcome to join the contest too if you’d like.”
“Not today Gracie. I’m going to tend to the chickens, which includes cleaning the coop. If you’d like to switch chores, I’ll oblige.”
“No thank you Ella. I’ll leave the chicken poop to you.” Gracie scattered to join her sister in getting overalls on for work. When my father was around, he discouraged the girls from wearing what he called Boys clothes. The girls were the only help I had and I didn’t care what they wore as long as chores got done.
