    Nostalgia Book: I love this book as a young girl and I felt myself transported back as I reread about how Addie learns to love her new land, how she finds bravery within, and how she learns to rely on those she loves. I cried just like I did as child when Eleanor is destroyed and when Addie clings to the side of the well during the fire. I love the line that Anna says about the prairie, "There's a vastness here that swallows you up and lets you go all at the same time." Such a sweet book.

    Every once in a while you need a good old-fashioned prairie story. This one was a good one; it had lots of action, and difficult and dangerous situations where the main character (a young girl named Addie), discovers her true potential and bravery. All in all a good book, but i probably wouldn't ever read it a second time.

    I love reading everything that the pioneers went through to start a new land. This little girl just wanted a doll. She made one herself from rags. Then she saves her brother from a fire by jumping in a well as the fire goes over them. Amazing! Loved it!

    I really liked it but the beginning was a little boring. My favorite part was when Addie saved the farm.

    It was disturbing how nasty Addie and George were to each other through most of the story, but refreshing to see that change. Amazing what a 9 year old girl is expected to do, and accomplishes.
