Many South Dakota pioneer women and their descendants captured the stories of daily life in their handwork. This program presents quilts, many discovered in trunks, closets and attics, made by five generations of one family living on the prairies of the Dakotas and Nebraska--spanning from the time of homesteading, through the Great Depression, to the modern techniques used today.
