Summary

Summary

A delicate, stunning account of life on the prairie from Newbery medalist Patricia MacLachlan.

Cool summer mornings begin with the rose orange sun and the smell of earth, and fade into hot summer nights with a yellow moon, covered in a quilt of stars. There are wagon rides, farm dogs, trips into town, and games of kick the can. These are prairie days.

Patricia MacLachlan applies her lyrical, sparse narrative to transport readers to the prairie of her youth in this stunning celebration of the beauty in the world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Childhoods as free as this one are not as common as they once were; borrowing MacLachlan’s is the next best thing.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A deeply nostalgic look at once-upon-a-time Midwest farm life.” Kirkus Reviews
“In sparse, lyrical prose, Newbery medalist MacLachlan extols the prairies of eastern Wyoming (circa the 1940s)…Nostalgic, yet filled with timeless experiences.” Booklist
