Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399235647, Hardcover)Jessie and Polly spend all day looking for Mama on the horizon, over the endless waves of grass. But when it is night, and she has still not returned to their soddy, they know she is gone. And, with their father helping his brother miles away, they know they must survive alone. They are determined to! Even if it means hiding in the prairie sloughgrass to protect themselves from the greedy and suspicious Smiths, the only neighbors they have.
Here in this starkly beautiful novel set on the open prairie in 1878, Frances Arrington reveals the raw pioneer courage and strong humanity of two young sisters who dare to face a new world alone.
