When I Was Young in the Mountains
For twenty years, Cynthia Rylant's story of childhood in the Appalachian Mountains has been an enduring favorite. Growing up in the mountains is depicted with a spare, lyrical text and beautiful, tender illustrations by Diane Goode. The book was awarded a Caldecott Honor Medal.
To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, When I Was Young in the Mountains is being released with a commemorative copper-colored band.
