Bo at Ballard Creek by Fitzpatrick Hill

Bo at Ballard Creek by Fitzpatrick Hill - 279 pages

Bo has an unusual family life.  She is the adopted daughter of two former coal miners that work as a blacksmith and cook in an Eskimo village in Alaska in 1930.  This book tells the story of about one year when they live in Ballard Creek.
I'm glad I picked up this book.  It's been on my list for a while to read.  It's a sweet story of a young girl.  She's very much loved by both of her "papas" and the whole town.  The story has kind of a timeless quality to it like the Little House on the Prairie books.  It's a little difficult to tell exactly when it is set.  I finally figured it out from one throwaway sentence about a calendar that came in the mail.
