Four Lines a Day

Four Lines a Day
The Life and Times of an Imnaha Ranch Woman
Janie Tippett

In the 1930's, a girl moved to a rural community along the Imnaha River in northeast Oregon's Wallowa County. There, in country so remote that electricity didn't arrive until the 1960s, she married and built a life of hard work and deep friendships with family and neighboring ranchers.

Through it all, she kept a diary--four lines a day--for sixty years. This is the story of the life of Mary Marks, revealed by those diaries and conversations with her long-time friend,Janie Tippett. As much as anything, this is a story of friendship between two women, a friendship built on a common love for ranching and for the wild, rugged country of the Imnaha.
