Story of a orphan that is sent from the sheltered world of her guardian aunt to relatives in rural Vermont. Gives a nice portrayal of early 1900s life and chronicles a young girl being taught to think for herself.

I read this book to my three boys in school, and we all LOVED it! The awakening of self reliance in Betsy makes for a great story!

What a pleasure! This book was fun to read from start to finish, and made me rethink the way I am sometimes too "helpful" with my own children.
