SummaryAdd a Summary
An orphan from the age of five, Hattie is tired of being passed from relative to relative, of being “Hattie Here-and-There” and belonging nowhere. When an estranged uncle leaves his Montana homestead to Hattie, she leaps at the chance for a home of her own even though she knows nothing of homesteading. With her cat, help from kindly neighbors, and lots of determination, Hattie sets out to conquer the land, the weather, and the harsh prairie lifestyle. Incidents both ridiculous and devastating illustrate the enormous odds that Hattie must overcome, but the Montana environment isn’t the only challenge Hattie is facing. World War I has begun and Hattie battles fear for her friend Charlie, who is overseas, and prejudice on the homefront. Many of the questions Hattie tries to answer, such as how to be a patriotic American, are questions we are still trying to answer today. Filled with humor, historical details, and thought-provoking moral dilemmas, Hattie Big Sky will appeal to fans of historical fiction, adventure, and coming-of-age stories.
