Book Review: Hattie Big Sky by Kirby Larson
She and her house mate, a mouser cat named Mr. Whiskers make a go of this laborious goal.
I loved this story and really wished it could go on and on, sorta like Little House on the Prairie.
Hattie is a genuine and likable character. A gal that anyone would be proud to call a friend.
Her story is inspiring, engaging, uplifting, and gives the reader a sound sense of what it is like to live with the bare basics in a remote shanty in the middle of no-where. Also, giving the reader the ability to understand the Pioneer spirit; that feisty independent brave and just a bit crazy gusto, to head west and conquer something!
