Publisher Comments:

The summer of '28 was a vintage season for a growing boy. A summer of green apple trees, mowed lawns, and new sneakers. Of half-burnt firecrackers, of gathering dandelions, of Grandma's belly-busting dinner. It was a summer of sorrows and marvels and gold-fuzzed bees. A magical, timeless summer in the life of a twelve-year-old boy named Douglas Spaulding — remembered forever by the incomparable Ray Bradbury.

Review:

"Bradbury is an authentic original." Time

Synopsis:

During one golden summer in 1928, twelve-year-old Douglas and his brother wander in and out of the lives of their elders.

The summer of 28 is described on the wine's label as "Independence Day" - A metaphor, a culimination of events in the boy's life celebrated as a bottle of Dandelion Wine.
