about this item

My mother, Sarah, doesn't love the prairie. She tries, but she can't help remembering what she knew first.

Sarah came to the prairie from Maine to marry Papa. But that summer, a drought turned the land dry and brown. Fires swept across the fields and coyotes came to the well in search of water. So Sarah took Anna and Caleb back east, where they would be safe. Papa stayed behind. He would not leave his land.

Maine was beautiful, but Anna missed home, and Papa. And as the weeks went by, she began to wonder what would happen if the rains never came. Would she and Caleb and Sarah and Papa ever be a family again?

Despite her new home with husband Jacob and stepchildren Anna and Caleb, Sarah cannot forget her home in Maine, where she brings the frightened children when fires and drought threaten to devastate the farm, in the sequel to the Newbery Medal-winning Sarah, Plain and Tall. Reprint.
