Returning to Hope, she helped her mother openthe community's first school, and in 1868 she married John FallAllison, riding on her honeymoon over the Allison Trail into theunsettled Similkameen Valley. Her record of the voyage, of Victoria,New Westminster, and Hope as they were in the 1860s, and her memoriesof the isolated but fulfilling life she, her husband, and theirfourteen children led in the Similkameen and Okanagan Valleys provide aunique view of the pioneer mind and spirit.
