The Story of a Pioneer
By Anna Howard Shaw, D.D., M.D.

With the collaboration of Elizabeth Jordon

To the Women Pioneers of America

They cut a path through tangled underwood
Of old traditions, out to broader ways.
They lived to here their work called brave and good,
But oh! the thorns before the crown of bays.
The world gives lashes to its Pioneers
Until the goal is reached--then deafening cheers.

               Adapted by ANNA HOWARD SHAW.
