Inspired by the diaries of her great-aunt who grew up in Washington State at the turn of the 20th century, Holm renders this tale of a young girl whose unique spirit captures the courage and depth of the American pioneer experience.
With seven older brothers and a love of adventure, May just can't seem to abide her family's insistence that she behave like a proper young lady. She's sure she could do better if only there were at least one other girl living along the banks of the Nesel River in Washington in 1899. Now that Mama's going to have a baby, there may be hope.
