by Harriett Burandt and Shelley Dale

A Texas cotton farm in the 1930’s is the setting for adventure and fun for twelve-year-old Irene Hutto and her big family.  It takes more than a panther attack at the swimming hole or a surprise hurricane and flood to destroy the determination and closeness of this family.  The strong character of Irene’s family is woven through the hardships, forgiveness, sacrifice, caring, courage, and laughter they experience together.
