What's a good country girl book?
So I'm going to the bookstore later and I needa good country book-about country living, where they hunt, and live out in the woods and fields.... you know, all the country stereotypes and stuff. I'm aiming towards one with a teenage girl main character but any will do. Any ideas?

the Swallows and Amazons series by Arthur Ransome is about children who in most of the books spend at least some of the time living out of doors and camping. they are set in England though so perhaps not quite what you are looking for.
