Publisher's Summary

It isn't easy being a pioneer in the state of Washington in 1899 - particularly when you are the only girl ever born to the new settlement. With seven older brothers and a love of adventure, May Amelia Jackson just can't seem to abide her family's insistence that she behave like a Proper Young Lady. Not when there's fishing to be done, sheep to be herded, and real live murderers to be captured! All May needs is at least one other girl living along the banks of the Nasel River. And now that Mama's going to have a baby, maybe there's hope.

May Amelia is the only girls in her family

I have read this book by author Jennifer L. Holm. I enjoy her works. This performance of May Amelia does not disappoint. I would recommend this performance.
