KIRKUS REVIEW

Eight-year-old Tibby, a pioneer child, wishes desperately for a school. But in the Michigan forests of the 1860's teachers are as scarce as schools. How Tibby finally gets her wish is told in this story, rich in homey detail of frontier life. An everyday atmosphere and emphasis on the domestic influence of the early west render this an unusual and refreshing story which should appeal to girls for whom the more familiar Indian and animal western is too masculine to be really appealing.
