Meet the Author

Linda Hubalek grew up on the Kansas farm that eventually became famous when she wrote her first book series, Butter in the Well, about the Swedish immigrant family that actually homesteaded this place in 1869.
Hubalek’s college degree is in agriculture and she has done agronomy research, owned a horticulture business, and raised American buffalo—besides writing historical fiction books about her ancestors that homesteaded on the Kansas prairie.
Readers compare Hubalek’s books as a combination of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House on the Prairie” books, “The Emigrants” series by Vilhelm Moberg, and a Willa Cather novel.

    Pioneer Diary story

    Good look through a young woman's diary at the changing times on the prairie as towns crop up on the horizon. Lots of details on Kansas history, particularly the Swedish town of Lindsborg Kansas. Old photos interesting with the details of dress fashions in the Victorian age.
