Über diesen Titel


Nine-year old Elenore describes her experiences living with her family in the Dakota Territory in the late nineteenth century.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6 Based on the diary of the author's grandmother who moved from Maine to the Dakotas in 1889 at the age of nine, this book might disappoint children who are expecting another Laura Ingalls Wilder story. It is more a descriptive narrative than story, as if a grandmother were actually recounting what life was like in the "olden days." Lacking a definite plot or strong character development, the book's strength is the colorful description of life on the prairies. The text is built around the passing of seasons, each of which had its own distinct quality. Spring ploughing among the wildflowers, hot summer mirages plus a violent tornado, fall thrashing menaced by prairie fire, and the deep snow of winter are vividly portrayed. Elenore Plaisted, a successful children's book illustrator in her later life, brought her artistic sense of imagery to her writing. Harvey states that she has added and rearranged things here and there, but primarily used her grandmother's own words. The text reads well orally, creating bright mental pictures to accompany the black-and-white drawings. The illustrations are soft and shadowy, as if they also are drawn from memory of a time in the past. With a little adult guidance (terms like "darning egg" may need explanation), this book could supplement the study of pioneer life on the prairie. Karen Zimmerman, I.D. Weeks Library, Vermillion, S. Dak.
