The Wind Blows Free is the first in the Texas Panhandle series, books I first read about 40 years ago. But don't worry about them being outdated, as the author created a true feel of homesteading in the 1890's. These books may remind you of the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
The heroine of this book is 14 year old Melinda Pierce. Melinda resisted the move from her city home to the wilds of the panhandle more than anyone else in the family, her only consolation the promise of returning to the city at 16. While the rest of her family learns to enjoy the freedom and beauty of their new home, Melinda refuses to adapt, until she meets another girl living in more difficult circumstances than her. As her horizons grow -- literally and figuratively -- she grows, too.
Home grown fun, friends, family and a sweet romance fill these books, as well as excellent descriptions of the long grass prairie.
I highly recommend these books.
