This story, told by Helen Stickney, is a small glimpse into the 93 years of her life. It relives her childhood in Mitchell, and later Hibbing, Minnesota, and the challenging, yet simpler times of life in the early 19th century.
Helen was raised on a dairy farm in a town that made history. Starting in 1919, Helen saw Mitchell literally moved one building at a time, over steel wheels and logs, to an area two miles south to make way for the largest iron ore mining operation in the 1920s. The move took years to complete, and changed her address from Mitchell to Hibbing, Minn.
This book also chronicles the love story between Helen, and her husband of 67 years, Roy E. Stickney. From their fairytale beginning through their twilight years, Helen shares cherished memories she holds dear in her heart.
