Rachel, ten, is having a hard time growing up on her family’s farm in South Dakota. She hates all of the hard work, and she’s scared by the wild Montana Angus cattle. Still, she works hard to do her share of the chores and to help her dad, but no matter how she tries to please him, he always seems to think she’s worthless. Set in the 1950s, Prairie Summer provides a glimpse into the adventures and dangers faced in every day farm life.
