ADVENTURES OF OCIEE NASH, THE cover image
Wonderful story - liked how she met famous people like Nellie Bly and the Wright Brothers. Wholesome family entertainment, strong female lead. Kids enjoyed the part when she saves the little girl from a burning horse. They noticed that Ociee had good manners
This is a period piece that reflects on the attitudes of the era. Ocie is definitely not the "normal" little girl from the late 1800s and for that, this story is a bit of a stretch. However, for girls of contemporary times, her story is believable and entertaining following her trevails to becoming what was accepted as a "lady."
For spirited nine-year-old Ociee Nash, nothing could be more exciting than romping through her beloved Mississippi countryside with her brother Ben and her faithful four-legged companion, "Woofer." However, Ociee's idyllic life is thrown into a tailspin when her Papa decides that since the death of Ociee's mother and Ociee's run-in with a mysterious Gypsy, the rough and tumble world of their rural farm is not the place for Ociee to grow up. Papa decides to send Ociee to Ashville, N.C. where her Aunt Mamie can teach her to become "a young lady." Sadly, Ociee boards the train to Asheville. Once on her way, Ociee meets an array of interesting characters, including the President of the United States, William McKinley. Ociee and Aunt Mamie quickly find there are two sides to every story. Trading in dungarees for dresses, Ociee tries her best to adjust, but is compelled to hold onto her spirited heart. Ociee befriends the proper young Elizabeth Murphy, but a trip to the creek and a meeting with young Harry Vanderbilt and the creek boys, finds Ociee and Elizabeth in over their heads. Aunt Mamie is more determined than ever that Ociee now conform to her strict standards. However, Aunt Mamie's soft heart is revealed when Ociee invites her childhood friend, Mr. Lynch, over for Sunday dinner. Ociee's true bravery, character and spirit come to the forefront when a fire at the Murphy house threatens the life of young Elizabeth Murphy. A triumphant "Ociee Nash Day" celebration ensues to everyone's delight. Starring Keith Carradine, Skyler Day and Marie Winningham.
