Publishers Weekly Best Book of 1999
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 hearded, 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.
"--the robust characterizations captivate, the lilting dialogue twangs, and the sharply first-person narrative gives the material authority and polish." --Kirkus reviews
"This novel is not to be missed" -Publishers Weekly, starred review
