Synopsis

Get Along, Little Dogies The Chisholm Trail Diary of Hallie Lou Wells by Lisa Waller Rogers

Noon Gabby, Dovey, Gussie, and I were frosting lemon cookies when we felt the rumble. It was like an earthquake. We rushed outside. Without my bonnet to shield the suns glare, I couldn't see at first. I had to squint. To the southwest, I saw a thick cloud of dust rolling our way. The low rumble we had heard in the kitchen had, by then, become deafening thunder. Thousands of hooves pounded the earth. It was the herd running toward us. It looked like a great brown river...The roundup was done. The men were home with the cattle. Its spring of 1878 on the Rockin W in South Texas, and Hallie Lou Wells is as cross as any fourteen-year-old redhead has a right to be. Her teacher says she has to memorize page 112 of Websters School Dictionary ; her most exciting decision is whether to wear her peach organdy or blue silk to the dance; and only boys can go on trail drives. But in country where anything can happen, something does. When Hallies mother discovers shes having another baby, Hallies father decides not to join the trail drive to Dodge City, and Hallie convinces him to let her represent the family's interests at the point of sale. So begins an adventure well worth chronicling. The first of the Lone Star Journals by Lisa Waller Rogers, Hallies Chisholm Trail diary is filled with adventures that will engage any middle reader, girl or boy, and is so rich in its depiction of ranch and trail life in the late 1870s that it should make any reading list, Texas or national. Following Hallies diary is a historic summary of life along the Chisholm Trail in 1878, complete with photographs and map, useful to young readers and teachers alike.
