Product Description

Hattie has been from family member to family member so often she calls herself "Hattie Here-and-There." So when a land-claim is passed to her from her late uncle, she jumps at the chance to prove up on her own claim and finally have a home to belong to. Living under the big sky for a year, Hattie struggles to complete the terms of the claim-adding 480 rods of fence, and cultivating 1/8th of her claim--forty acres--but gets a load of help and companionship from her "neighbors" Perilee Mueller and her German husband Karl. However, as WWII continues, all Germans come under suspicion of a local "council of defense" patriotism force, and Hattie must face even more trials as she keeps loyal to her friends while attempting to keep her claim secure.

Loosely based upon the author's grandmother's experiences homesteading in Montana, this New York Times bestseller will keep readers engaged until the very end. 289 pages, softcover. Grade 5 reading level. Ages 9-12.

Publisher's Description

Alone in the world, teen-aged Hattie is driven to prove up on her uncle's homesteading claim.
For years, sixteen-year-old Hattie's been shuttled between relatives. Tired of being Hattie Here-and-There, she courageously leaves Iowa to prove up on her late uncle's homestead claim near Vida, Montana. With a stubborn stick-to-itiveness, Hattie faces frost, drought and blizzards. Despite many hardships, Hattie forges ahead, sharing her adventures with her friends--especially Charlie, fighting in France--through letters and articles for her hometown paper.

Her backbreaking quest for a home is lightened by her neighbors, the Muellers. But she feels threatened by pressure to be a "Loyal" American, forbidding friendships with folks of German descent. Despite everything, Hattie's determined to stay until a tragedy causes her to discover the true meaning of home.
