Review:
When a pioneering family moves from Carolina to Michigan early in the last century, Grandmother insists on bringing along a sack of cloth scraps to make quilts, even though there is precious little room in the wagon. "I aim to set on it," she says. In a surprising way, these quilting scraps and the ingenuity of one of the children end up saving the family from a freezing winter. Ronald Himler's watercolors are muted and austere; his earthy tones keep our attentions close to the ground, and close to the heart of survival via enduring values.
