In Coal Country
- 1987 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award Honor Book (Picture Book)
Illus. in full color. "Through the eyes of the little girl who is narrating, we see memories of her childhood in coal country. The immediate ingredients in her life--family, school, friends, and holidays--are described lovingly. The power of the book, however, lies in the deep, dark counterpoint that underlies the light melody of the childhood reminiscence. Though the text is spare, the dark, eloquent pictures speak volumes."--(starred) Horn Book.
