For years, sixteen-year-old Hattie's been shuttled between relatives. Tired of being Hattie Here-and-There, she courageously leaves Iowa to prove up on her late uncle's homestead claim near Vida, Montana. With a stubborn stick-to-itiveness, Hattie faces frost, drought and blizzards. Despite many hardships, Hattie forges ahead, sharing her adventures with her friends--especially Charlie, fighting in France--through letters and articles for her hometown paper.

Her backbreaking quest for a home is lightened by her neighbors, the Muellers. But she feels threatened by pressure to be a "Loyal" American, forbidding friendships with folks of German descent. Despite everything, Hattie's determined to stay until a tragedy causes her to discover the true meaning of home.

    " I was shocked by how much I loved this book. One of the librarians suggested it when I told her I was desperate for some good reading. The premise seemed uninteresting, but after a few pages, I was sucked in by the poetical writing. I loved it. Beautiful, beautiful writing. "

    " I loved this book. I continued to think about it when I was not reading it, pondering Hattie's situation and her sorrows. I was curious why Hattie washed her hair in sugar water and began to research it and other things I was unfamiliar with about the era. The characters in this story seemed very real to me. I began to wonder about books that Chase would enjoy reading and decided to try out Perilee's recipes. These are all indicators of a well crafted story. I think a good project for this book would be to write Hattie a letter and ask her questions about Montana farm life. "
