Author: McMullan Kate
Year Reviewed:: 2006
Review: My America series. This third part of Meg's Kansas territory story explains how life on the prairie presented daily challenges for the courageous people who dared to begin life in this new place. From "cross writing" to save paper, through Christmas in the cabin, to the school in Lawrence, Meg's Diary entries offer the reader a real taste from the past. The celebrations like weddings and the tragedies such as the tornado help the reader understand the life and times.
