Robbie Lee Wilds turns six just after the devastating stock market
crash of 1929. This funny and moving historical novel is based on
stories passed down from the authoras grandmother. The Wilds of
Houston Valley weather the Great Depression living happily off the
land. Sustained by the love and decency that flourish in their
valley like the maple and oak on its surrounding hills, this
hardworking farm family never loses sight of its values. Hooveras
Presidency and FDRas New Deal measures like the heralded Tennessee
Valley Authority are fascinating landmarks in this young girlas
life. Through it all, the fiercely inquisitive Robbie wonders about
life beyond the valley. She discovers her voracious appetite for
reading, shares her motheras poignant secret and, above all, learns
the meaning of faith.
