Little Blog On the Prairie: A Book Review
September 14, 2010
"Welcome," Betsy called down from the porch, "to the year 1890."
And that's when it hit me. Those women who work at the historic field trip places? Betsy wasn't one of them. These weren't costumes she and Ron were wearing. Their clothes were for real. And in about five minutes, all of this would be real for me to.
Join Genevieve Welsh and her family as they set out to live as if they were in the year 1890, ALL SUMMER! This means no electricity, no iPod, no jeans, and no phone. Gen manages to sneak in her new phone and keep in contact with her friends on the outside through the occasional text message. But what happens when she is not only found out, but she finds that she is not the only one with hidden technology?!
Read the book to find out what happens to a (semi) normal family when they are forced to cook on a wood stove, hoe corn, and use an outhouse! This book kept me cracking up and (almost) made me want to give a frontier family history camp a try!
