Item description for The Wide Horizon (Texas Panhandle Series V2) by Loula Grace Erdman...

Location: North America, United States Time Period: Modern Era (1700-1950 A.D.) , American Westward Settlement Texas 1890s In this second book about the Pierce family, more than five years have passed since their first moving into the Texas Panhandle. They have learned to live in a primitive sod house and have overcome-and even come to love-the odds that the land presents. Even so, 15-year-old Katie, gentle and artistic, is eager to return to East Texas to be schooled in the finer things that this pioneer country lacks. Then an accident to Grandmother reverses everything! Katie, to her own surprise, finds herself volunteering to stay home to feed and care for Papa, the boys and Carolyn on the farm, while Mama makes the eastward journey to care for her mother. During the next few months, timid Katie encounters one distressful situation after another. Despite fears and setbacks, she resolves to do whatever seems needed. As Katie's confidence grows, so does her interaction with family and new and old friends deepen-all against the picturesque backdrop of homesteading life in the Texas Panhandle during the late 1800's

Reviews - What do customers think about The Wide Horizon (Texas Panhandle Series V2)?

Second in Texas Panhandle series  Jan 3, 2010
The Wide Horizon" is the second in the Texas Panhandle series, books I first read about 40 years ago. But don't worry about them being outdated, as the author created a true feel of homesteading in the 1890's. These books may remind you of the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
This book takes place 5 years after the Pierce family moves from their city home to become homesteaders in the harsh plains of the Texas panhandle. They have learned to enjoy much about their new life. Gentle Katie, the middle daughter, appreciates the subtle beauty around her, and basks in her family's love. However, Katie is timid and very sensitive to the harshness around her, too. She longs to return to her old home, live with her grandmother, and study art.
When her grandmother has an accident, Katie's mother travels back east to help her, and Katie bravely volunteers to stay behind. Going from one embarrassing problem to another, Katie finally proves her mettle to herself and her family during a terrible blizzard.
I highly recommend this book. They would make wonderful presents for young girls. Just be sure to read them in order.
