I first read this one when I was twelve years old, which by the way, was the year it was published. I have to admit that I fell in love with the young lady in the story at the time. The story is of a young women, an indentured servant, who runs away and simply makes her own way in the American wilderness of that day and times. The story is well told. Yes, it was written for and meant to be a juvenile book, but I was luck enough to run across a copy recently, read it again, and still found it charming. I must admit that I found I still had a bit of a crush on her. Recommend this one highly, if you can find a copy.

Girl in Buckskin

This book originally was written when I was in High School. I loved it then and thought I'd pick up the rerelease and see if it held up to my adult expectations. It did. I hope my granddaughter will someday read it.

A really cool book!!!

There are few books that forfill my lust for reading, but Girl in Buckskin soared beyond my expectations. Becky runs away with her brother into the wilderness, and during that time she learns to trust her Native friends, survive by herself, and she even managed to get a little romance.
