Publisher Comments:

"We're poor", Mountain Girl insists at a family meeting around their homemade kitchen table. Her parents, who love the outdoors and their independent way of life, disagree. And as her family attempts to calculate the value of the desert hills, the colors of blooming cactus, and the calls of eagles and great horned owls, Mountain Girl realizes that she, too, knows they are rich beyond measure. Full color.

Synopsis:

As her family attempts to calculate the value of the desert hills, the colors of blooming cactus, and the calls of eagles and great horned owls, a young girl--who has been led astray by the family's lack of material wealth--realizes what really matters. Color illustrations.
