The Divide by Michael Bedard

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Divide When Willa Cather was a girl her family moved west to the open prairie of Nebraska leaving behind a world Willa loved dearly Gone were the wooded hills and the meadows marbled with sheep In their place was a flat empty land as bare as a strip of sheet iron Willa felt she had come to the end of things she felt the land did not want them .

But then spring came and the silent land stirred to life Summer followed long and hot and Willa roamed free over the open fields on her pony Slowly she began to explore the hidden delights of this strange new countryside and to make friends with her fellow settlers on the Divide By the time autumn came with its splendid sunlit colors Willa understood that what she had thought was an ending was really a new beginning .

Michael Bedard and Emily Arnold McCully evoke the spirit of the American West in this lyrical story with delicate richly hued illustrations They celebrate as Willa Cather did in her novels the wild beauty of the vast prairie she came to love and the sturdy spirit of the pioneers who made it their home
