BAD PENNY by Rhoda Morris


Email this review


There seems to be a reversal of the old pattern in this story of a little Indian girl who is carried away from her people by her white father, and -- with his death -- more or less forced upon a white family, where she struggles to overcome her unhappiness and homesickness and to learn new ways. The story has a certain value in its picture of pioneer life from a somewhat different angle, but it seems rather artificial in the telling, and not a book which would appeal automatically to youngsters.
