Kirsten Larson is a pioneer
girl of strength and spirit growing up on the Minnesota prairie in 1854.
Kirsten's stories begin with her long, dangerous voyage with her family from
Sweden to America. At first, Kirsten finds it difficult to get used to this
strange new country. But as she makes friends and discovers what her new land
has to offer, she learns the true meaning of home -- and that love is the same
in any language.After a long, dangerous journey from Sweden, Kirsten and her
family arrive at a tiny farm on the Minnesota frontier.
Meet Kirsten begins when Kirsten and her family travel from
Sweden to America by ship. A lot of things happen to her along the way, and she
must stay brave for her family.
This book was not as good as some of the other American girl
series, but I liked it. I was saddened by some things that happened in it, but
I could never really connect with Kirsten.
Other than that I did like this one, and I look forward to
reading more about her in other books.
