Sally belongs to a household full of aunts and uncles, all headed by her Uncle Joseph and ruled over by his sister Nannie. Uncle Joseph finds there is more than one way to "skin a cat" when he hits upon the plan that will allow Aunt Nannie to give in about her obstinacy in moving from Massachusetts to Maine and at the same time be true to her word. She'd said, "I will never leave my own fire nor sleep in any but my own bed." The end result is an unforgettable adventure, which Sally enjoys to the hilt. Each family member flavors this picture of Early New England. Miss Coatsworth's acclaimed lyrics between the chapters contribute to the rhythm of wind, weather and memorable episodes on the way to an unknown land. Delightfully illustrated by Helen Sewell.
