Orphaned siblings Becky, Dick, Phil, and Joan have inherited a homestead in 1910 South Dakota.  But to keep the land or sell it they must first live there for 14 months. Not sure if they can live in the remote prairie for that long they decide to try anyway.  They deal with unexpected expenses, unpleasant neighbors, claim jumpers, bad weather, and other problems, but eventually triumph over them all and gain the respect and friendship of the nearby town's inhabitants and come to love their prairie home. A sweet story of a family adventure in a time with amazing opportunities.  Illustrated
