"This is the story of a meadow - the woodchucks, pheasants, and meadow mice. Here are the lush grasses, the wild strawberries, and the daisies and goldenrod that grow along its edges. It is also the story of the birds and the butterflies who fly over it. But primarily, it is a living record of the animals and birds and insects who make the meadow their home. . . seen through the eyes and heard through the ears of a boy who has learned to know these inhabitants at first hand." Abundantly illustrated by the author.
