Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395720370, Hardcover)

A small wooden bird carved by a Plains pioneer woman is passed down from mother to daughter, from generation to generation, together with stories of each owner - a quiet gift of identity and strength. It's time to hand both the bird and the stories down to the young narrator, who adds her story, becoming part of the legacy. This cumulative tale of eight generations of women highlights the personal struggles and adventures of these strong survivors.
