"Karla is a strong female lead, and her independence—and her dedication to her goal of a successful hunt using her mother’s rifle—is refreshing.”

— Kirkus Reviews

"As its title forecasts, Diane Elliott’s Buttermilk Skies takes readers into a world where the ever-changing cirrus clouds scuttling across Montana’s Big Sky presage the kinds of storms so common on the open range of junior high. ... Throw in Karla’s growing anticipation of her first antelope hunt and you have the makings of a complex and compelling coming-of-age novel."

— Linda Peavy and Ursula Smith, authors of Frontier Children

"Karla, the feisty heroin of Diane Elliott’s Buttermilk Skies, is a character almost never seen between book covers, a teenage girl whose unabashed passion for hunting not only helps her

to come of age, but in doing so, to give a spark of life to a ranching family trying to cope with loss and abandonment. Elliott’s writing gives eloquent voice to young outdoorswomen

anywhere horizons are broad and untarnished, and I for one hope we will ride toward the sun with Karla again soon."

— Keith McCafferty, Field & Stream editor and Spur Award

winning author of the Sean Stranahan series for Penguin Books
