1.   You Come to Yokum
Carol Otis Hurst (Author), Kay Life (Illustrator)
It is 1921, and Frank and his brother move with their family to Yokum Pond to run a hunting and vacation lodge. While their father struggles to master driving the "tarnatious machine," their new Model T Ford, their mother is busy campaigning for ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment. Undeterred by the rural setting and less-than-receptive neighbors, she brings the fight for suffrage to the farmers' wives and millworkers of the surrounding towns, much to the consternation of her husband and a number of the lodge's guests.
[Grade Level: 3 - 6]
