Phoebe's Folly was hilarious! Anyone who likes American History, but isn't too serious about it would love the book! Phoebe's way of telling the tale,( and bagging Mr. Harley's rabbit, for rabbit stew), are almost inspiring! The Kennan twins, with their superior markswomanship, (and"la-de-das") along the trail, give the book a little adventure and pizzaz. The way Phoebe gets into a shooting match is too funny to describe, especially with the end result! And how many girls, on their 13th birthday, shoot a bear? All this, plus more, complete a wonderful tale of a journey made by women on the Oregon Trail!
( However, my only concern is that some men might not like the book, because it focuses more on women, as dubs the name, "The Petticoat Party")!
