"A marvelous story about courage, loyalty, perseverance, and the meaning of home. I gave my heart
to the brave and determined Hattie,
and I think you will, too."
— Karen Cushman, author of The Midwife’s Apprentice, Newbery winner and Catherine,
Called Birdy
, Newbery Honor winner

"If you're interested in what it was
like back home during World War I,
or what it was like for homesteaders
in the west, or you just generally like survival stories, you should absolutely pick up Hattie Big Sky. And if none
of those things are true for you, you
should pick it up anyway. You won't
be disappointed."
— Jen Robinson's Book Page

"This is a great read for anyone who appreciates history or learning what life was like for teens in years past."

— Detroit Free Press
