by Elizabeth Yates (Author), Nora Spicer Unwin (Illustrator). Book 1 of 2 in the Mountain Born Series. I love Elizabeth Yates. This book taught some great historical and moral lessons! It had a lot of description which made it a slightly-slower read, but my 8 and 9 year olds and I still enjoyed it.
