Hattie Big Sky

This is an okay book written by Kirby Larson and based on true events. Hattie Brooks no longer has her parents and she has been shuttled from one relative to the next. At age 16 in 1918, she receives word that her uncle has passed away and left her some land. She has one year to cultivate the land and build a fence to take advantage of a homestead claim and keep ownership of the land. She is unprepared for the tasks, but thanks to her German neighbors she is able to make progress. An unforeseen death and mounting debt cause her to question her resolve.
