Nominated for 1999 ALA Best Books for Young Adults
This book boasts a hidden treasure: the facsimile reproduction of a 1916 work by 11-year-old Marian Doan, telling how she and her friends created a town from lines of stone and imagination. Memoirs, reminiscences, and graphic materials combine to weave a vivid tapestry of Marian and her world, and to trace the long impact of her vision. More than eighty years later, here's an intimate glimpse of how a young author's work inspired a noted picture book--a play--and a movement to ensure that children could continue to play on the hill that imagination had transformed forever.
