Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-6-- George 12, loves playing the trombone, but his father sees his music as foolishness and constantly reminds him that someday he will inherit the family farm. After his youngest sister dies from the measles, the boy runs away to join a traveling theatrical troupe, finds out about life, and returns home, where he is welcomed by his father, all problems seemingly over. George, the younger brother of the heroine in Addie Across the Prairie (1986) , Addie's Dakota Winter (1989) , and Addie's Long Summer (1992, all Albert Whitman), is a pleasant young man with the usual questions about life and the need to find his own way. Set in the late 1880s, his story flows along nicely if predictably and the happy ending is satisfying. However, things happen too easily and with too little emotional content for the book to be a real page-turner. For purchase where there is a demand for historical fiction, and where the ``Addie'' titles are popular. --JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA
Kay Weisman
The latest title in Lawlor's series about the Mills family's experiences homesteading in South Dakota focuses on 12-year-old George, Addie's younger brother. A talented musician, George feels his abilities are unappreciated by his family, in particular by his salt-of-the-earth father. Following the death of his youngest daughter, Mr. Mills threatens to sell George's prized trombone, which prompts the boy to leave home. He joins a traveling theater troupe to play music, but he finds that his most valued skills are the practical ones learned from his father. Gradually George comes to realize that the troubadours are charlatans who are taking advantage of him. As a result of his adventures, he matures and returns home with more appreciation for and tolerance of his father's point of view. Historical fiction buffs as well as fans of the earlier Addie books will enjoy this offering.
