Summary of the Book 'A Voice In The Wilderness':

Margaret Earle an Eastern girl thinking she has reached her destination in Arizona where she is going to teach school steps off the train at a lonely desert water tank and the train moves on leaving her in the darkness and in a strange forlorn land. But she steps off into a series of adventures and thrilling events which make entertaining reading indeed. After an unpleasant encounter with one man she is rescued by another young Lance Gardley like herself an Easterner and out of this meeting grows the romance of the story. Margarets school and the strange religious life of the community make a splendid setting for this fresh crisp western tale.
