Ruth Tweed attended a one room school in West Central Minnesota. Memories of the rural thirties help bring her fictional Sally's experiences to life. Miles from the nearest town, County School District 13 is not only the school but also the focal point of the community. Sally, the oldest student, is a frustrated eighth grader. Ruth's first novel uses this background to picture education in an era that seems foreign to children today. Although it is hard for most of us to imagine country school, this book gives us a glimpse inside and will bring back memories to those who lived it. This is Ruth Jesness Tweed's third book. She previously published two books of poetry and short stories.

    "The Ninth Year by Ruth Tweed" Being of Norwegian descent I found this book to be both entertaining and educational. It provides a background into the hard lives, strong work ethic and values of the early Scandinavian settlers in the upper midwest. The characters are well-developed and their anecdotes provide humor and warmth in their home lives as well as that of the education in a country school setting. I feel this book should be a "must read" for people of this heritage who want more background information on their roots.It also provides a wonderful representation of this nationality in the field of multi-cultural literature, which is of the essence in today's education. I highly recommend this book.
