"Wise and innocent, compassionate and unforgiving, full of high spirits and dauntless determination, Collie Dutton is a girl you'll easily recognize and never forget. The time is the 1960s, when the world outside her ordinary small town is brimming with social upheaval and the new threat of atomic disaster. For Collie, these are much more than newspaper headlines. As she adventurously wrestles with life's many contradictions, Collie Dutton struggles to discover her own place in the world, as well as her connections to her family, her beliefs, and her own special powers of creativity."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
