Kids meet tractors and trucks/ Andra Abramson

April 18th, 2018 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

They tower over us, moving our food and goods where they need to go. They roll past us on the highway, metal hubcaps gleaming. They shake the ground as they pass. They lift, carry, push, pull, and more. Trucks and tractors never fail to amaze, and in this book, they roar to life as they seem to pop off the die-cut pages.  c. 2013

Worthy Brown’s daughter/ Phillip Margolin

March 27th, 2018 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Matthew Penny, a young lawyer, arrives on the frontier with nothing but shattered dreams. Unable to face the memories that await back home, he joins the handful of lawyers practicing in Portland, Oregon – which in 1860 is just a riverfront town in a state less than a year old. Worthy Brown, a slave from Georgia, journeys west with his master, Caleb Barbour, who promises to reward Worthy and his daughter, Roxanne, with their freedom if they help him establish a homestead in Oregon. When Barbour reneges on his pledge, Worthy’s hope for a fresh start with his child is destroyed.  c. 2014
