About this Item

An exceptionally nice copy. Book itself is in fine condition -- clean as a whistle inside and out. Inscribed and signed by author on title page thus: "For ----- with best wishes from Joan Blos, 9/15/87" Dustjacket is likewise very clean and paper retains its crispness. Has not been price-clipped and is most handsome in brand new mylar. Retains Newbery Award seal at front. Only fault is a small bit of rubbing at front near top and bottom of spine.This book is a multi-award winner. Not only did it claim the 1980 Newbery, the highest honor awarded a children's author, but also won the American Book Award and was an American Library Association Notable. A slim, but satisfiying, novel told in journal form of a young girl's life on the farm in early America. It offers much insight into the activities of those days, but also shows how a single year can bring so much change and, and at the same time, lessons and growth. 145 pages.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
