Four Girls on a Homestead Reviews
Carol Ryrie Brink won the Newbery Award in 1935 for Caddie Woodlawn. So when I found this 37 page memoir of her 14th summer my curiosity was piqued. She and three of her chums joined her aunt on the homestead her aunt had improved over several years, giving us a peek at the entertainments and adventures available to young people at that time. She used several of the experiences in later books.
This is a fun book if you like a bit of local N Idaho history. There isn't really much to it beyond the adventures of four silly high school age girls, but it does give a little glimpse into the life during that time period. It's a quick easy read, and very worth it.
