Review: Nothing to Do but Stay: My Pioneer Mother

User Review  - Brenda - Goodreads

Carrie Young tells the story of her Norwegian mother and life as a homesteader on the North Dakota prairies. I enjoy reading everyday biography. This is a short book and would make a good book club selection. Read full review

Review: Nothing to Do but Stay: My Pioneer Mother

User Review  - Laurie Simmons - Goodreads

A perfect book of the genre of someone remembering the life of their Norwegian immigrant parents on the high plains and their growing up years. Lots of interesting details about women's, men's, and children's lives on homesteads and during the Great Depression. A real gem. Read full review
