About This Show

In 1899, life on the Nasel River in Washington is hard for a 13-year-old girl, and May Amelia Jackson is the only girl in all of the Nasel settlement. She learns from the women in her life–the grandmother who blames her for everything, the aunt who is her safe haven, and the mother who depends upon her–that being a girl doesn’t mean you can’t be strong. As a pioneer, she learns that being independent can be as dangerous as it is fun, especially when you are the only May Amelia. Based on actual diaries from Jennifer Holm’s Northwest family, Our Only May Amelia brings the pioneering spirit to life for those who wish they’d lived here 100 years ago. Recommended for everyone age 8 and older
