    1. I have heard of Bill Wallace and Snot Stew, Upchuck and the Rotten Willy and The Biggest Klutz in Fifth Grade. I knew he wrote children's stories but I never would have guessed that he was the author of Buffalo Gal. It was a charming historical narrative of two teenagers that met during the early 1900s in the American southwest. Amanda Guthridge accompanied her mother to Texas. -Conveniently, her father stayed back to run the family newspaper business in San Francisco, California.- Mrs. Guthridg [...]


    2. Gosh I love this site. I read this eons ago, over, and over, and over again. It is Great!!! Its a ligth romance with tons of adventure and nice look into life years ago. Young girls will definitely appreciate it. Its acceptable while still giving that amazing high that nice romances give only for a young audience. Very light and young historical romance and adventure.


    3. One of my favorite books from childhood, in fact just read it the other day and still loved it, so a favorite of adulthood also!


    4. My sister read this, and recommended it to me years& years ago. I think we were in middle school. (she always found all the good books!)I remember the girl’s mom was researching buffalo, or something, and wanted her to go out west with her, and the girl didn’t want to.I remember her saying she should name her horse after the guy in here, so she’d get some satisfaction out of kicking him.On the trail, there was a man in here who made a toothbrush for the girl out of a plant. It was cool [...]


    5. This is such a good story. I loved this book, not only because the love interest was part Native American, but that they were out in the wild west and we got a glimpse of life back then. I liked the love/hate relationship of the main characters, that they got off on the wrong foot and had bad opinions of each other, but that they came to love each other. This is such a good book, comes from a time when books were inspirational and interesting and actually let you learn something. I'm surprised t [...]


    6. I love this book. It is the first book with romantic tones I ever really loved and I still sing Buffalo Gal to myself. Amanda was such a badass but also kind of soft like me, lol. Great descriptive scenes and it really describes land that I know and love so well. Probably because the author is from my home state, in fact from the town I went to college in! This is one of those 'early hints that I would be a raging feminist' books.


    7. Reread it this year as part of a 2017 "bucket list". This was one of my favorite books as a kid. Still enjoyed it a lot. I expected to laugh at it and kind of nostalgically criticize the cheesy writing. But I couldn't seem to do it. I didn't laugh, but I smiled plenty and I almost cried at least once. Great book for pre-teen girls who are (or want to be) strong, independent females. Don't get me wrong, it is cheesy writing, but it's still a fun read.



    8. This was such a cute, fast read! I enjoyed it very much.A sixteen year old San Francisco socialite goes on an adventure with her mother to save the buffalo only to meet a pig headed Oklahoman who drives her crazy. Lots of fun cattle driving action, spiteful female reactions, and a sweet little ending. Totally rated G <3


    9. Reader thoughts: This was such a funny book. Even though it's very western, I thought Bill Wallace's way of telling Amanda's story was unique. City girl in the country isn't a new story, but throw in buffalos, trains, jeans, a hailstorm, rattlesnakes, crocodiles, and outlaws. This book doesn't slow down.Amanda wore jeans for the first time (no skirts!) and forgot her toothbrush (made one from grass) and her mouth hurt from smiling (that'll show David, ha). She almost beat David Talltree at horse [...]


    10. Reviewed for compassbookratingsOverall Review: Buffalo Gal was one of my favorite books when I was young. So when I recently discovered it on my bookshelf, I had to see if it was as good as I remembered. Happily, I wasn't disappointed! Set in 1904, this delightful adventure opens with fifteen-year-old Amanda bemoaning how her summer has begun. She's stuck with her mother in the wild Texas frontier looking for some buffalo! Author Bill Wallace creates a strong female lead, a teenager who starts h [...]


    11. gosh where to start, this book was in my school library and im a literal reading bug, my librarian (although shes quite found of me i think) used to have to restrict me for reading during exam times on the account of my parents and teacher they used to say "it's agreat hobby shania but u hav to draw the line SOMEwhere". this book however just deepened my love for reading i read it when i was 12 the first time and read it 3 times over consecutively so much so that my librarian thought id lost it [...]


    12. Loved this book when I was growing up! I think I got it at one of those book fairs and just read it over and over. Part of the appeal was the main character had the same name as me. It was a light,funny, historical romance for young adults.Amanda, A spoiled, teenage girl goes on a trip to Texas with her mother to help save a herd of buffalo. Along the way she encounters a half Indian boy named David. He is around her age and thinks she's pretty much a waste of space and should just go back home [...]


    13. I absolutely adored this book when I was 12!! My copy is so dog eared and folded back, from years of rereading. I loved Amanda and how she totally showed up David when he thought she couldn't do anything. My twelve year old self wanted so badly to be as cool as Amanda. Plus to have her adventures and a sweet guy to come and save her when she truly needed it. I am blinded by years of rereading this when I was younger, to not see anything wrong with this book. Its a fun, light read. I recommend!


    14. I got this book as a prize for earning points in Sunday School. Avid reader that I was/am, I was always bringing books home. It was slow to start, I remember, but then I just couldn't stop reading it for anything. It was exciting, funny, romantic. I absolutely loved this book. I know I kept it when I packed up my stuff last time I moved, but after seeing it here again, I want to find it and re-read it. Is it available on Kindle? ;-)


    15. All time absolute favorite book. I've read it SO many times since first spying it on the shelf nearly 20 years ago. My copy is worn, pages brittle and missing it's front cover- but it's my most treasured book in my collection. The story, the characters- everything so perfectly, well written. There's danger and romance, and heartbreak- cowboys and Indians! Trains, buffalo and alligators. SUCH a good story.


    16. I absolutely loved this book growing up. It was probably my introduction into romance. It's a light historical western adventure with a little romance for the young readers. I don't know if it was the spirited young girl, trail rides in my home state Texas, or the boy drama but I must have read this story a dozen times and fell in love with it a little more each time. To the young or young at heart, give it a try if you're looking for something lighten up your day!


    17. I got this book for free at a book fair, and I am heartbroken that I can't find it now, because I read it to TATTERS. I think this was one of few Wallace books to have a female main character - or at least one I could relate to.I remember loving the historical fiction aspect, and the girly girl to tomboy transition. Actually, now that I think about it, this reads a lot like Avi's Charlotte Doyle


    18. A thoroughly enjoyable read with realistic characters. It lost a star for mild sexuality while the author continued to use "bottom" instead of butt (ie. she slid along her bottom).After multiple readings, I still really like it. (view spoiler)[I especially appreciate that, while a buffalo was killed, there was real remorse shown and reparation made.(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)]


    19. This was one of my favourite books in elementary school. Keeping this short and sweet because this book is wonderful (everything by Bill Wallace is wonderful, and all children should read them). Fav:- protag is awesome- protag's mom is even more awesome- like bison are involved- bison are awesome- the romance was so cuteHates:- I don't own it- wtf is up with that


    20. My favorite book as a teen. I've read this book over a dozen timeseven in my college years I enjoy it! Historical fiction, set in Texas, with the young spunky girl having the adventure of her life and then falling for the guy she can't stand. All the ingredients of a classic and clean romantic epic! *sigh*!! This one still makes me smile! :)


    21. I remember my mom getting this book for me at a used book store when I was maybe 8 or 9, I've loved it ever since. It's my go to book when I'm feeling down or sick because I can just enjoy it like a kid without too much heavy thinking, although sometimes that's good too. I like that I can sink right into the story and giggle over the romance just like when I first read it. Great read.


    22. I must have read this book until it fell apart when I was in elementary and early middle school. One of my favorites. I can remember very little about it now, but I had it almost completely memorized 20 years ago.


    23. One of my favorite books when I was younger. I think I first read it in the fourth grade, which might be a little young, considering some of the content. However, since I was reading at at twelfth grade level and had a nurse for a mother, it was okay for me.


    24. This was totally one of my favorite books growing up. I re-read it constantly, my copy is worn down. It's funny, because if I hadn't read it when I was young, I probably wouldn't pick it up today based on the storyline. But it is totally a great book for younger gals!


    25. This is another great teen - reader that I loved! I read it a LONG time ago, so if you take my recommendation, know I am remembering how much I liked it in high school. :) I'll have to read it again. I remember it being really cute, though.


    26. This is one of my growing up favorites. I think the characters are fun and the setting is exciting and different. Amanda is a girl that is experiencing the end of one era and the start of another. It's a good book for teens and young adults they just want something light and fun to read.


    27. This is such a great western, romance novel for Young Girls. I remember picking this up as a young girl at the school library, the cover brings so back memories. Also, didn't know he wrote the Christmas Spurs.A book I very much recommend!


    28. Absolutely loved this book when I was growing up! My sister and I read this so much, that the covers are now missing. A good deal of the appeal for me was thee David and I had the same ethnic background. A newer copy of this book must by added to my bookshelf.


    29. One of my favorite books of all time! How do I know? Because it's one of the most worn-out, most re-read books on my bookshelf! So light, heart-warming and entertaining!
