US Kirkus Review »
The author and her young sister, poor, alone, decided to stake a claim in South Dakota and homestead it. From a discouraging start, in a desolate land, with few neighbors, they make their way. First through school teaching and running a press. Then a move to the site of a land lottery as general storekeeper, newspaper editor, Indian traders. They do a grand job against hazards of man and nature. But they find it exciting. One of them marries; the other moves west. Good human document, not particularly distinguished in style, but unquestionably interesting. For the Mary Kidder Rak market, and so on. Good plus sale for older girls. (Kirkus Reviews)
