Dear America: A Coal Miner's Bride: The Diary of Anetka Kaminska, Lattimer, Pennsylvania, 1896
by Susan Campbell Bartoletti

Meet Anetka, a 13-year-old Polish girl who comes to America as a promised bride to a Pennsylvania coal miner. Her fascinating (fictional) diary/journal entries give readers a personal glimpse into what life was like in a coal-mining town during a tumultuous time in our country's past.

This book is part of the Dear America series---a series of fictional journal accounts by girls living in different times in American history.  There is also a related series of fictional diaries written by boy characters---the My Name is America series. Both series are written in the form of historical fiction diaries and are fantastic to use when teaching American history or even diary/journal writing.
