Read full description of the books:
This was not nearly as good as "Kate's Book", which was one of my favorite books as a young girl. Nevertheless, my daughter loved it. I would actually rate it 3 1/2 stars if I could. There is plenty of action, yet the book seemed drawn out. Does anyone know if there is a third book? It seemed that there were a few loose ends. Mary Francis Shura teaches the young reader about pioneers and homesteading with an able pen while also entertaining them. She is arguably as good at storytelling as Laura Ingalls Wilder. I wish she was better known for her charming books.
