Spunky Emily Bartlett lives in an old farmhouse in Pitchfork, Oregon - at a time when automobiles are brand-new inventions and libraries are a luxury few small towns can afford. Her runaway imagination leads her to bleach a horse, hold a very scary sleepover, and feed the hogs an unusual treat. But can she use her lively mind to help bring a library to Pitchfork?
For ages 9 to 12.
