Bo at Ballard Creek by Fitzpatrick Hill
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.
