*I* couldn’t put this book down! This is filled with adventure, mystery, a bit of sadness/worry for the characters and keeps you wanting more.
I am thoroughly impressed with the writing and was a bit sad when the last came too quickly.
Definitely recommend adding this to your home library!
My daughter liked how kind the main character was to others. She also liked that she was trusting. She has learned a lot from the good examples set by the characters in all of these library books from the Good and the Beautiful!
Ok, so my 12 year old son is usually all about easy reads or super heroes. I really wanted him to branch out with his reading choices so i ordered this and a few other level 6 books. He was hooked and finished in a matter of days. He said to me “Mom i really liked this story! It was interesting and had lots of exciting parts” “can i let Grammy borrow it? I think she’d love it too!”
Thank you for making quality books that don’t skimp on adventure and life lessons. He can’t wait to read the next book in the pile 🙂
Becky and her family leave their farmland in the Ozarks to join nearly 100,000 people in a race for homesteads during the Cherokee Strip Land Run of 1893. With a fast horse named Sprinter, Becky’s family hopes to get some of the best land, but unexpected events threaten their dreams. Interesting characters, an exciting plot, and feel-good messages all come together in this wonderful historical fiction book.
This book is a suggested read-aloud for the History Year 3 course and is included in the optional History 3 Book Pack.
