Very good with some light wear to cloth at corners, a tear to bottom edge of ffep and flyleaf, former owner's inscription on recto of frontis, and a bump to foredge of page block. Originally published in 1899, this is the second of two stories for girls by Carrie L. Marshall. The first which came out in 1897 being, "The Girl Ranchers of the San Coulee."

The Philadelphia Times of December 2, 1899, has the book slated as a holiday release from Penn Publishing, and says it "tells of two girls who are thrown on their own resources and are obliged to 'prove up' their claim."

The Detroit Free Press from Dec. 23 of that year gives a better description of the plot:

"The heroine is a brave little maid whose father is drowned in a flooded mine, leaving her to protect a little brother and sister and defend the disputed title to the ranche, which is their only inheritance and which a village neighbor is determined to secure for himself. The two girls make a shrewd campaign against their enemy and win our sympathy in their ultimate triumph."

A scarce title in its original format. Item #4588
