Samuel Moore and his daughter Hannah set out for the border country
with a party led by George Rogers Clark but left to follow the
Kentucky River to Boone's Fort. As the story opens, Hannah is nursing
her father, injured when an axe slips and cuts his leg. By the time
Tice Fowler, on his way to Logan's Fort, stumbles upon them alone in
the wilderness, Samuel is dying from blood poisoning. When Samuel
dies, Tice takes Hannah to the fort, where women are scarce, and
Hannah finds herself besieged by suitors. Only with Tice, as silent
and downright as herself, does Hannah feel at ease. Finally, she turns
to the bashful Tice and asks him to marry her and take her away from
the crowded fort. Together, they stake their claim to land, build a
cabin, and start a family. They endure the harsh frontier life, the
threat of hungry wolves, a killing blizzard, and Indian raids.

I grew up loving the Little House on the Prairie books and Hannah
Fowler almost reads like a grown up version of those books. The
dialect, while well done, does take a little getting used to, but that
is a minor complaint. At its base, this is a touching and tender love story. ( )
