A homesteader's shack with a sleigh parked in front.

"Winters were long, cold, and lonely for the homesteader. The sense of isolation was lessened somewhat by the use of sleighs and other means of winter transportation. In addition to making it easier to get the winter work done, it was also possible to visit neighbours and get to town."
