Aunt May, and Cletus Underwood. After being
passed among relatives, Summer joins her aunt and
uncle and marvels at the couples deep love for
one another. But after Aunt May dies, Summer and
Uncle Ob are brought together in their struggle
to come to terms with the death. Cletus, a
neighbor boy, comes along to help provide an
answer.

Appalachia The Voices of Sleeping Birds
In this beautifully created picture book,
Rylant describes the people and places of
Appalachia as only a native West Virginian could.
Her love for the hard-working folk who live in
this region is shown with great tenderness and
understanding. The grit of the coal fields, the
celebration of the seasons, the tastes and smells
of home cooking are all shared in this poignant
story.
