In this episode Sherry and Marshall explore the cost of goods on the frontier. They'll share some comparisons of today's money versus the value of the dollar in the 1800s. They'll discuss how much people earned, what is cost to run a Kansas farm, mail-order catalogs, and the amount it cost to shop for every day items.
