Appalachia: The Voices of Sleeping Birds

Appalachia: The Voices of Sleeping Birds Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lyrical prose and warm watercolor illustrations bring a "certain part of the country called Appalachia" alive for young readers. Two award-winning artists, forever touched by their experiences growing up in this unique landscape, have teamed to create a quietly powerful and beautifully crafted portrait of life in a timeless place.

Synopsis:

Cynthia Rylant and Barry Moser present a gentle yet poignant picture, in words and images, of the people of Appalachia-their homes, food, dogs, surroundings, and views of the world. It is a personal and authentic perspective--one that shares the Appalachian spirit of family and connection to nature.

About the Author
