"Kim Tyler knew, as she gazed for the first time at the cold, bleak shores of Connecticut Colony, that her new home would never be like the shimmering Caribbean islands she left behind. She was like a tropical bird which ahs flown to the wrong part of the world. And in the stern, Puritan community of her relatives, she soon felt caged as well, and lonely. In the meadows, the only place where she could feel completely free, she meets another lone and mysterious figure, the old woman known as the Witch of Blackbird Pond. But when their friendship is discovered, Kit is faced with suspicion, fear, and anger. She herself is accused of witchcraft!"

"Silver—a whole mountain of it! Following the trail of some runaway horses, Jim Norton had stumbled on a fortune. Or so he and 17-year-old Earl thought at first. But they soon learned the truth of Uncle Henry’s words: ‘Silver is work. . . a long way and a million blisters.’ And they soon learned to work sensibly, for overwork could break a miner’s strength, and carelessness could cause a mine cave-in. The time was 1870, and the place Montana. The two greenhorns were fresh from the comforts of Indiana and had been on their first prospecting trip. Little had they thought they’d find a rich strike, or that their camping spot in unmapped territory would become, overnight, the scene of a stampede of jostling prospectors and, later, the site of roads and stores and cabins—a growing mining town."

"Louis is a Trumpeter Swan who came into the world lacking a voice. When his father explained to him that he was different from other cygnets, Louis felt scared. His father, however, promised to help. Sam Beaver, a boy who loved all wild things, took Louis to school, where he learned to read and write. This was a help, but it did not solve his major problem: he was in love with the beautiful swan, Serena, and she spurned him because he was defective. And that was when Louis's father, the old cob, did a difficult thing -- he put honor aside and stole a trumpet so his son would be able to woo his love. Louis's determination to become a trumpeter and pay off his father's debt takes him far from the wilderness he loves. But he succeeds and wins the swan of his desiring."
