How'd they get.....


......so much nice stuff in such a desolate area? That house they lived in looked like it was built by a custom homebuilder. Nice clothes, books, food with no noticeable crops, nice lamps on the walls, clean bright colored linens. Looked like a couple of yuppies that went off and built a Cabin with the husband's $500k bonus from the prior year.

I can't speak for *all* the stuff, but Lizzy does tell Emma that her husband made their furniture rather than bring it from St. Louis. It's not inconceivable that they did bring the clothes, lamps, books and linen with them. Maybe the crops weren't noticeable but they were alluded to: Isaac was helping Gideon sow his. I can't imagine anyone who's making $500k bonuses living in those conditions. If I had that income, the first thing I'd invest in would be a solid door.
