Review: t would be hard to come up with a tale of western settlers that's not a cliché, but Bunting has done it. She takes a look at a pioneer woman, seen through the sympathetic eyes of her daughter, Zoe. She creates scenes that makes this family larger-than-life; they capture the baked yellow heat of summer, and the golden weed that represents home. A memorable book for the way its characters struggle with unhappiness and slowly overcome it.
