This chapter describes the Alexanders' life in Oakland. It begins by looking at Annie's education at the Lasell Seminary for Young Women in Auburndale, Massachusetts. This is followed by an account of the European vacation she took with her family and the Baldwin family, where she decided to stay in Paris to pursue the career of an artist. When this failed, Annie embarked on a series of tours that brought her to countries in Europe and Asia. A trip across northern California and southern Oregon introduced her to Martha Beckwith, who eventually became her lifelong friend. The chapter also mentions the start of Annie's interest in paleontology.
