This young adult novel is an historical fiction about Hattie, a homesteader, in Montana in 1918. What makes this novel especially fascinating is that it is based on research the author did about her own great-grandmother.
The descriptions and sights and sounds of the sweeping prairie will draw you in, as will Hattie’s touching friendships and harrowing adventures.
Hattie, an orphan, learns much about herself, and life, as she works to prove up her claim left to her in her Uncle Chester’s will. ‘Hattie Big Sky’ is a touching story that all ages will enjoy.
