MG - Through Flood & Fire: A Second Barr Colony Adventure (by Anne Patton)
13.3 x 19.1 cm (5.25 x 7.5 in)
"Hold your tongue, Dorothy Bolton! I expect ladylike behaviour wherever you are."
Dorothy is in a campsite on the edge of a little village called Saskatoon. The year is 1903 and the 10-year-old girl and her family have come all the way from England to Canada. They are heading to a new settlement.
While her mother stays behind to nurse victims of scarlet fever, Dorothy sets out with the rest of the family across the prairies to the Barr Colony. But it is going to take all her courage and determination - and some help - to make it through the floods, the wildfires and the broken promises.
