Summary
Eleven-year-old Sam and his father arrive in an undeveloped part of western Canada in 1915 and begin to plan a new farm for the family waiting back in Iowa. By the author of Wings to Fly. Reprint.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: It is 1915. Endless stretches of grassland against a boundless sky are all Sam Ferrier sees when he and his father arrive in Curlew, Alberta, to build a new house for their family. He wonders why his restless father would move them to this lonely, barren place, so different from Iowa. But after the house gets built and the family joins them, Sam gradually discovers that there is much more to the flat, featureless prairie than he realized. The new land sparks his wild curiosity. But when his little brother disappears, Sam discovers how terrifying the terrain can be. The Ferriers survive their new life on the prairie with its brutal winters and devastating isolation. Sam even makes new friends with a brave and resourceful horse named Prince.
