Race for the Prairie
Becky and her family leave their farmland in the Ozarks in hopes to get a homestead during the Cherokee Strip Land Run of 1893. With a fast horse named Sprinter, they plan on claiming some of the best land, but unexpected events threaten their dreams. Interesting characters, an exciting plot, and feel-good messages all come together in this wonderful historical fiction book.
This book is a suggested read-aloud for The Good and the Beautiful History Year 3 Course.
