Annie May Weightman and Violet Cobble are best friends and
neighbors. They live in Cimarron County, Oklahoma, during the Great
Depression. This is their story, told in two voices. Annie is
happiest on the ground, sifting through the dust for traces of the
past. But Violet is a dreamer always playing make believe to
escape, to fly away from the dusty land. In this beautifully
crafted first novel, poet Tracey Porter joins together two unique
voices to tell a larger story of America, its hopes and dreams,
during a time when thousands fled their prairie homes in search of
work, food, and shelter.
Annie and Violet's story is one of friendship and
courage--treasures shining through in the face of hardship.
