Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arizona was born in a log cabin her papa built. She grew into a tall girl who liked to sing, square-dance, and — most of all — read and dream of the faraway places she would visit one day.

Arizona never did make it to those places. Instead she became a teacher, helping generations of children in the one-room schoolhouse which she herself had attended. Gloria Houston's Joyous recounting of her great-aunt Arizona's quiet yet meaningful life reminds us of the magical place a special teacher can hold in our hearts.

Synopsis:

Bestselling children's book author Gloria Houston celebrates her great-aunt's life. Arizona Houston Hughes lived her entire life in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. It was there that she learned about words, numbers, and faraway places--and it was to there she returned, after being trained as a teacher, to share her indomitable spirit and sense of wonder with generations of school children. Full color illustrations.
