Rachel is a strong African American female who made the most of a difficult life on the frontier.Rachel’s story drew me in and I found myself very emotional reading about the family and their endeavors to survive the brutal landscape and weather of the South Dakota Badlands.Rachel and Isaac’s story for survival is the most important theme but the author also integrated accounts of racial tensions that were transpiring in the early 1900’s making the book a well researched historical fiction.
