Two cousins spend an adventurous summer on a ranch on the Hungarian plains.

No child should miss out on the adventures of headstrong Kate, a girl from Budapest who spends summers with her cousin Jancsi on his father's ranch in Hungary.

Horseback races across the plains, country fairs and festivals, a dangerous run-in with gypsies, and the chores and the joys -- and the colorful cultural trappings -- of daily life in pre-war Europe create a vivid, unforgettable world.

I recommend this book to all ages


Kate Seredy has been an inspiring author for my mother to read to me in early fifties but for me to read to my grandchildren now. She writes with the poignancy and passion of an autobiographical "fiction" set in Hungary in this book "The good master", followed by "the Singing tree" with another favourite "the open gate". Her vivid expression and her exquisite (charcoal/ink) drawings give the story a depth and authenticity. It would appeal to all ages and genders.
