KIRKUS REVIEW

First rate entertainment in this personal story of the daughter of a Baptist missionary, for it has the adventures and swift pace of a western pioneer story, and the warmth and humor of individual memoirs. Frontier Texas at the turn of the century, the establishment of her father's congregation, and the start of a new church, provided Opal with a spirited childhood, happiness, excitement and tragedy. Intimate, ample knowledge of a minister's family, good Americana and regional values.
