From the author of Among the Meadow People and other books in its series comes Dooryard Stories, a collection of 18 short tales about the creatures in the gardens outside the author’s home.
From the introduction- “These stories are of things which I have seen with my own eyes in my own yard, and the people of whom I write are my friends and near neighbors. Some of them, indeed, live under my roof, and Silvertip has long been a member of our family. So, you see, I have not had to do like some writers-sit down and think and think how to make the people act in their stories. These tales are of things which have really happened, and all I have done is to write them down for you.”
This edition is complete and unabridged, featuring all the images and decorations of the original publication.
