“…a tale of extraordinary hardship conquered through courage and humour. Maryanne’s voice is lively and immediate.”
The Globe & Mail

“From Maryanne’s deeply detailed reports of her new experiences, readers get a fascinating glimpse into the reality of pioneer life.”
CM Magazine

“Anyone who enjoys the Little House series will find this girl’s story just as courageous.”
ABA Kids’ Pick of the List

“The narrative is filled with fascinating practical details, such as the making of a sod house, or “coffee” from left-over barley, that are reminiscent of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. But Caswell’s prose style is much more literary than Wilder’s, often attaining lyrical heights as she notes the beauty of prairie birds, flowers, and sunsets.”
Quill & Quire

“An authentic view of life as it was lived over a century ago on the prairies.”
Monterey County Family
