Through the Barbed Wire
Isla is a young girl who likes to go on adventures; she loves the outdoors, and nothing can stop her exploring. Isla has grown up living out in the prairie with her family. Their house is isolated, and there are no other houses near them, so Isla is surprised when on one of her explorations she meets a boy named Cash who also lives out in the prairie. Isla and Cash become great friends because they share a love of the outdoors and protecting the prairie. Exploring the wildlife on the prairie is one of the things the friends enjoy the most. Life on the prairie is not always easy, but when they work together, they can face any problem that comes their way.
Isla and Cash were great characters. They were exciting, and they seemed like people you would want to be friends with. Even though it was a fictional story, this book was filled with interesting facts and details about the animals and the overall experience of prairie living, which made for a very interesting read.
