Pioneer Girl: Growing Up on the Prairie
An inspiring true story in the tradition of The Little House on the Prairie.
Grace McCance was three when her family settled in a one-room sod house on the lonely Nebraska prairie. There was hard work for everyone, the nearest water source was two miles away, and disaster could strike at any time in the form of a tornado, a drought, or a rattlesnake bite. Still, Grace thrived amid the dusty soil of the American heartland: "I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful life."
