Quilters is the story of a pioneer woman and her six daughters. A rich mosaic of scenes captures the sweep and the beauty, the terror and the joy, the harsh challenges and the abiding rewards of frontier life. Illuminating stories intertwined with music and dance depict the lot of women on the frontier: Girlhood, marriage, childbirth, spinsterhood, twisters, fire, illness, and death. There is also love, warmth, rich and lively humor, plus simple human dignity and steadfastness in the face of adversity.
