Symon’s Daughter: A Memoir of Elizabeth Symon Smith

Orphaned at 11, the daughter of a Scottish Presbyterian minister earns a teaching credential and sails to America in 1905. Guided by her father’s faith, a powerful sense of humor, a passion for knowledge, and a will to make the world a better place, she leaves her mark on Utah and southern Idaho.

How this indomitable woman raises six children during the hardships of the Great Depression — all of whom became professionals and leaders in their fields — will inspire parents today.

Don Ian Smith was a Methodist minister, a rancher, the author of five books, and the son of Symon’s Daughter.
