A biography of the wife of Henry Hastings Sibley(born Sarah Jane Steele), Minnesota's first First Lady.

"Six Miles. Not far today, but in Sarah Sibley's time six miles challenged all her training and abilities to maintain relationships with family, friends, God, and a rapidly homogenizing culture. Through it all, she demonstrated her deft skills in managing a demanding household and leading Minnesota's very first historic preservation effort. The wife of Minnesota's first governor lived in Mendota, longed for St. Paul, fully embraced life, and for ten years endured an infection that claimed her life. Both for ordinary and extraordinary accomplishments, Sarah Jane Sibley is worthy to be remembered."
