Description
Growing up on their midwestern farm, Mary, Mabel, and Molly can see to the flat horizon in all directions. "What this place needs is a tree", they decide, and so they plant a tiny elm. Over the years as the sisters grow up, marry, and have children of their own, their elm grows with them, weaving itself into the fabric of their lives. When the tree finally succumbs to disease, three new sisters -- their great-granddaughters -- are there to plant a new tree so the story can begin again.

Author Norma Sommerdorf heard this story from the real Mary, her mother's cousin, while workmen were cutting down the old elm. Her simple, poetic retelling, joined with Erika Weihs's evocative folkstyle paintings, celebrates and continues the life of the tree, and the family it belonged to.
