Jeannie, A Texas Frontier Girl, Book - Book Two Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Jeannie, A Texas Frontier Girl, Book - Book Two

Jeannie and her immigrant friend, Helga, from Germany, the boys, Henry and Billy Joe, and all their friends face exciting, daily "true-life" adventures on the West Texas frontier of the l880s. The girls develop a friendship with a Comanche Indian family and they learn skills and crafts of another culture. Swimming, horse-back riding, confronting a mountain lion, cooking, sewing, fishing for catfish, attending a birthday-party barn dance, and being characters in a Christmas program are some of their many adventures. The whims of nature create problems for them, and each day is a learning experience for all, as they continue to develop their abiding faith and cope with difficulties of frontier living. Jeannie dreams of a "some-day" horse ranch of her own, while there is a subtle rivalry between herself and Slim, a ranch foreman on Helga's step-father's ranch, concerning the best method for training horses. Each chapter begins and ends with an adventure and a learning experience for the characters. Can be used as a "read-aloud" to younger children and as a historical book report in school for older children due to the authentic facts of daily frontier life as recorded in the chapters.
