Item description for When the Meadowlark Sings: The Story of a Montana Family by Nedra Sterry...

An exceptionally well-told account of growing up on the Montana prairies through the homestead boom, the Great Depression, World War II, and the postwar advancements brought by rural electrification. Prize-winning novelist Cai Emmons praises Sterry by saying she "really knows how to tell a story." Sterry grew up in a succession of isolated one-room schools in northern and central Montana, where her mother, a teacher, eked out a living. A must read for anyone who loves Montana and its rich history.

Reviews - What do customers think about When the Meadowlark Sings: The Story of a Montana Family?

When the Meadowlark Sings  Feb 29, 2008
This is a charming book about the difficult life of an abandoned wife of a family in early Montana years that has to support them. Because early Montana schools did not have money to fund full year rural schools many times, she had to move her brood mid-year sometimes to yet another location she could find to teach & keep them together. Her daughter has written a lovely book that is a tribute to her Mom & the positive attitude with which they were raised/taught through this difficult life.
I've heard the Meadowlark  Sep 9, 2005
Nedra Sterry is a great story teller. This is a throughly enjoyable read; it does get a bit confusing to follow as it isn't written cronologically. Aside from that, it could have been written about any number of Montana school teachers and their families, trials, and tribulations.
What a revelation!  Aug 26, 2005
Being from that part of MT myself, I found this book quite compelling and a very easy read. I found myself asking questions and then being surprised at the answers it took me awhile to find out after it dawned on me what was happening. I admire the perseverance of the women who pioneered the frontier.

Nedra, you did a great job conveying the hora of living in that land back in the day. We all know it was hard but re-living it through your eyes brings it closer to reality. All we can really say, is thank God for your mother and her strong faith in education.

I enjoyed the book very much and wish that more people would take advantage of this opportunity to learn about some of the stories of our foremothers so to speak.
