Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book Love her writing, very enjoyable read. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A childhood favourite I really enjoyed it, but like the family, I found the winter to be a tad tiresome. When I did find it tiresome, I went to the internet to find out how much of the story is true and actually is very faithful to the events of the winter of 1880-81 in the De Smet, S.D. area. What I found fascinating was that nobody in the area died, although if it had lasted longer there probably would have been some deaths.
