Hatton also wrote another book called, "Eden Valley", which is described as a western historical fiction paperback, and co-wrote a book with her father Walter Hatton, called "Back in those days 1902-1935".
" A Frontier Wife " was first published in 1988. Susan told me that her father Walter was a big Lincoln buff. This book was used as reading material in the English Department at Edison Junior High School for over 10 years. It was also sold at New Salem State Park.
The Tazewell County Museum is currently selling "A Frontier Wife", in paper backs, which were donated by Susan Hatton to the Museum for fundraising purposes. Price is $6.00, and can be purchased by calling the Museum at 309-347-8375, 309-346-1889, or by emailing us at email@example.com .
