              The poems in this collection were chosen for their appeal to young people, and sorted into the four seasons, so readers can get a taste of growing up in New England year-round. In James Hayford's poems, you'll hear a Vermont way of talking--no wasted words. You'll hear language w...hittled into poems satisfying to read aloud and surprising in their power to reveal truth. This collection is steeped in New England, and yet speaks to readers anywhere. Hayford gets at the nature of things--whether a skunk, a goat, a walk in the snow--in a manner that unearths insights about our selves, no matter where we live. Recalling hay-jumping joys and swims in a secret pond, he evokes moments of sometimes happy, sometimes wistful solitude. Michael McCurdy's stunning engravings and woodcuts amplify the drama of New England seasons and the beauty of rural life.

              Arizona's Arivaca Valley lies only a short distance from the Mexican border and is a rugged land in which to put down stakes. When Arizona Territory was America's last frontier, this area was homesteaded by Anglo and Mexican settlers alike, who often displaced the Indian populati...on that had lived there for centuries. This frontier way of life, which prevailed as recently as the beginning of the twentieth century, is now recollected in vivid detail by an octogenarian who spent her girlhood in this beautiful, cruel country. Eva Antonia Wilbur inherited a unique affinity for the land. Granddaughter of a Harvard-educated physician who came to the Territory in the 1860s, she was the firstborn child of a Mexican mother and Anglo father who instilled in her an appreciation for both cultures. Little Tona learned firsthand the responsibilities of ranching an education usually reserved for boys and also experienced the racial hostility that occurred during those final years before the Papago Indians were confined to a reservation. Begun as a reminiscence to tell younger family members about their rawhide tough and lonely life at the turn of the century, Mrs. Wilbur-Cruce's book is rich with imagery and dialogue that brings the Arivaca area to life. Her story is built around the annual cycle of ranch life its spring and fall round-ups, planting and harvesting and features a cavalcade of border characters, anecdotes about folk medicine, and recollections of events that were most meaningful in a young girl's life. Her account constitutes a valuable primary source from a region about which nothing similar has been previously published, while the richness of her story creates a work of literature that will appeal to readers of all ages.
