Synopsis: Johnston's exquisite poem and Bloom's extraordinary paintings illuminate a family's history until it begins to match that of readers. 31 full-color illustrations.
From the Inside Flap: Yonder is a farmer on a jet black horse. Yonder are the hills taht roll forever . . . Come visit a time and place where one family's life began--yonder. Way over yonder, sometime in the nineteenth century, a young farmer plants a plum tree. The farmer marries, plows the land, and sheds his solitary way of life. Children, then grandchildren, are born; summer melts in to blazing autumn, into frozen winter; the plum tree blossoms and sheds its blossoms; the farmer grows old. Gradually on family's history is illuminated till it becomes as vivid as our own. Readers of all ages will be moved by the graceful simplicity of Tony Johnston and Lloyd Bloom's book. Here is a loving tribute to the family that gleans from life's ordinary passages a perennial--and extraordinary--beauty.
