A School Library Journal Best Book of the Year "Simple yet stirring, this is perfect for preschooler bedtimes."— Booklist starred review Fans of the classic picture book Owl Babies by Martin Waddell and Patrick Benson will adore this utterly simple picture book in which a baby owl goes off on his first adventure. With just three or four words per page, this story follows a baby owl one night as he leaves the safety of his nest (Home/Mama/Brother/Sister) and explores the starry world around him (Soar/Glide/Swoop/Swoosh). Inspired by reverso poetry, the words reverse in the middle when the baby owl is startled upon seeing his reflection in the pond (Owl/Sees/Owl). Afraid of it, little owl takes off toward home, soaring over farms and forests (Swoosh/Swoop/Glide/Soar) until he is finally safely home again (Sister/Brother/Mama/Home). "Fans of Jane Yolen’s Owl Moon and Martin Waddell’s Owl Babies will also love this calming story about an owl’s first adventure." —School Library Journal, Starred

These interlocking stories cover the migration of J. J., his wife Naomi, and their son Otis from their start in Tulsa to their settlement in Albuquerque; Otis' coming of age amid the shifting fortunes of his family; and events in other peoples' lives at the same place and time. Gish creates a world where the workings of Providence are hard to fathom and their outcome often hard to bear. From the Tulsa race riots of 1921 to Buck's last coon hunt, the reader never finds a place to rest, thought rough justice is always at work.
