Nine-year-old Andy Catlett embarks on a trip going alone by bus to visit his grandparents. It is Christmas 1943 and--as he sees modern life crowding out the old ways--those he meets become touchstones for his understanding of a precious and imperiled world.

This beautiful short novel is a perfect introduction to Wendell Berry's rich and ever-evolving saga of the Port William Membership.

There is so much depth in this picture of a child visiting his grandparents. A beautiful tribute to the ties of family and a simpler, not easier, way of life in the 1940's.
