Butter in the Well (Butter in the Well Series Book 1)

Butter in the Well: A Scandinavian Woman’s Tale of Life on the Prairie, 1868-1888

Butter in the Well Series, Book 1

Swedish immigrant Kajsa Svensson Runeberg fights to survive and build a homestead on the Kansas prairie as she and her family faces the trials of weather, disease, accidents, and loneliness.

This historical fiction, written in the form of diary entries dating 1868 to 1888, is based on the actual woman who homesteaded the author’s childhood home. True stories gathered on this Swedish family and community show the determination these pioneers had, to face and overcome the conflicts and tragedy that happened in their lives.

“…could well be the most endearing ‘first settler’ account ever told. Once a reader starts the book, they are compelled to keep reading to see what will happen next on the isolated prairie homestead. Not to be missed!- Capper’s Family Bookstore
