Nice addition to the library

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2010-05-28) Good Permalink

This is a heartwarming story of a young girl living in a share croppers community in the early 1900's.  When her mom gets sick she has to go to the big city to get help.  Excellent middle level reading.  Historical fiction.
