Manson's woodcuts, painted in the colors of a snowy evening, lovingly depict the wintry countryside".--"School Library Journal". Full-color illustrations.

About the Author

Lydia Marie Child (1802-1880) was a celebrated American author, abolitionist, and women's rights activist. Born in Medford, MA, her grandfather's house still stands near the Mystic River as a tangible reminder of her most memorable poem.
Christopher Manson is a well-known author/illustrator who undertakes extensive research for his books. For Over the River and Through the Wood he reviewed Currier and Ives prints and Victorian patterns. He currently resides in Rockville, Maryland.
