For years, 16-year-old Hattie's been shuttled between relatives. Tired of being Hattie Here-and-There, she courageously leaves Iowa to prove up on her late uncle's homestead claim near Vida, Montana. With a stubborn stick-to-itiveness, Hattie faces frost, drought, and blizzards. Despite many hardships, Hattie forges ahead, sharing her adventures with her friends, especially Charlie, fighting in France, through letters and articles for her hometown paper.

I loved Hattie Big Sky! Reading it was like drinking a steaming cup of cocoa while being wrapped in a warm blanket. Following Hattie through her adventures and challenges was delightful, and yet realistic.
