"A tall, vigorous woman describes her experiences as a young bride living in a sod house on the Dakota prairie . . . The spare text . . . is perfectly attuned to the splendid black-and-white drawings. A rich experience for a young audience . . . A superb complement to the social studies curriculum in the early grades."--The Horn Book. ALA Notable Children's Book.
