THE LITTLE WHIRLWIND by Margaret Ann Hubbard

I liked this story of one young pioneer, whose temperament could not keep pace with the placidity of her Scotch parents. They lived on the border under dispute between Canada and the United States, and when the decision favored inclusion in the United States, they moved towards a section where the game was better and the chances for livelihood therefore increased. With them moved the family of an Indian woman and a Frenchman, and they settled near an Indian village. An excellent picture of the close linking of the races in the frontier days, of the ways of life, the activities of the children, of the share they took in responsibility. There is enough incident and adventure to hold the interest, and the story has flavor, authenticity and a quality that distinguishes it from the general run of frontier stories.
