I read this to see if my granddaughter might like it. Very family-friendly with history, humor, and positive character traits. Great lessons on perseverance and contentment.

This is about a young pioneer who not only moves to Alaska with her family, but takes leadership in improving their living conditions. Although she is considered a child, she does not allow that to stand in her way of getting things done. I loved this strong young lady. This book was hard to put down. You really want to see if she can make a difference, and if so, how.
