In the spring of 1865 the Civil War has ended and families all over the South and the North are waiting for their men to come home. Twelve-year-old Tyler hasn't seen his father, since he left their home on Sweet Creek at the beginning of the war to join up with General Jo Shelby of the Iron Cavalry Brigade of Missouri. When a passing soldier tells Tyler that General Shelby refused to surrender to the Yankees and is headed for Mexico with his men, Tyler resolves to find his father and bring him home. Tyler and a strange dog Bigger make the long, hard journey. The courage, loyalty and friendship of Tyler and Bigger make this poignant, triumphant novel one that readers will find hard to forget. 137 pages.

3 Dorris, Michael Guests
Ages 8 and up. Moss is frustrated. His father invited outsiders who dress strangely and speak an odd language to the village's special harvest meal - and no one but Moss seems to care how that will change the way things have always been. No matter whom he talk to, no matter what he says, people just smile and tell him, "Someday you'll understand why. " Learning from the subtle morals of old stories as well as by simply listening to the people around him, Moss grapples with the ultimate truth of being a grown-up: You are who you are. 119 pages.
