Ann Turner is an award-winning screenwriter and director, avid reader, and history lover. She is drawn to salt-sprayed coasts, luminous landscapes, and the people who inhabit them all over the world. She is a passionate gardener. Her films include the historical feature Celia, starring Rebecca Smart—which Time Out listed as one of the fifty greatest directorial debuts of all time; Hammers Over the Anvil, starring Russell Crowe and Charlotte Rampling; and the psychological thriller Irresistible starring Susan Sarandon, Sam Neill, and Emily Blunt. Ann has lectured in film at the Victorian College of the Arts. Returning to her first love, the written word, in her debut novel The Lost Swimmer, Ann explores themes of love, trust, and the dark side of relationships. Her second novel, Out of the Ice, a mystery thriller set in Antarctica, was published to great acclaim in Australia and will be available in the United States in 2018. Ann was born in Adelaide and lives in Victoria. Visit Ann’s website at AnnTurnerAuthor.com.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6 Up A wispy mood piece with its own unity and effect without comparison to the treatment of the same topic as Wilder's On the Banks of Plum Creek (Harper, 1953). Though Dakota is named in the title, the limited action could take place in any of the Plains states or in any long valleys of the West. Himler's sketches are realistic with a touch of ethereal nostalgia; they give substance to the verse-by-verse account of a young wife's prairie life in the last century. Because of vocabulary and concepts, this picture book is more for older readers than for children. The jacket blurb states that "A woman tells her granddaughter" about life of long ago; however, neither Turner nor Himler even hints at a prairie baby.
