Grade 3-5 In 1883, Addie Mills, 9, and her family are on their way to their homestead in Dakota Territory. Addie, convinced that she is not the brave, sod-busting pioneer type, is worried about all of the dangers of the trailIndians, prairie fires, rattlesnakes, and blizzards. She does encounter Indians, who ask her for food, and she realizes that they mean her no harm. She and her younger brother escape from a prairie fire. From her experiences, Addie learns that doing something courageous in spite of being frightened is what bravery is all about, and decides that she can meet the prairie's challenges. Although this story starts slowly, it does pick up and move along at a fast pace. For the most part, the writing style is average, but the fire scene is quite well done. The pen- and- ink drawings add to the book and enable readers to visualize life in a soddy. This is an easy- to-read chapter book with large print that will appeal to those children just beginning to tackle longer stories. It would be a good addition to larger collections where historical fiction on this level is in demand. Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multonomah County Library, Portland, Oreg.
