As the author states in her Acknowledgements this fourth volume of Dakotah Treasures was not planned; it became a necessity when Opal Torvald, Ruby’s young sister, was left stranded in the continuity. There was also the unresolved situation involving Jacob Chandler and his son Joel, characters introduced in the third volume. But this book begins by presenting Amethyst Colleen O’Shaunasy toiling day and night on a farm in Pennsylvania, under the oppression of her slovenly liquored-up father. He sends Amethyst to Medora/Little Missouri, Dakotah Territory, to fetch his deceased son, Patrick’s boy Joel. After arriving to Medora Amethyst discovers that Joel was fathered by Jacob Chandler before her brother married her sister-in-law Melody. (Melody had delivered Joel to Chandler before she met her demise.) Joel is therefore not her nephew or her father’s grandson. Her trip seems to have been for naught. But she is quickly ‘adopted’ by the warm-hearted folks of Medora and makes the decision not to return to the drudgery of her father’s farm. This book manages to satisfactorily tie up all the lose ends from the previous books.

Snelling is a masterful author of historical novels set in America, many of which have connections to Norwegian immigrants and their descendants. Having that same ethnic background myself, I started reading Snelling’s books after my mother left them on her passing. I kept adding new books as they were published. Incredibly, this reading was my twenty-first Snelling book and I have four more waiting on the shelf. I have not always been happy with some of Snelling’s references to Norway, Norwegian names and language, and with some errors about settler’s lives, circumstances, wildlife, etc. but her books have been consistently entertaining.

In very good shape, took a while to arrive, but as expected, enjoying reading it. It definitely was needed to add to the series.
