Product Description

In the spirit of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings’ “The Yearling” and Katherine Paterson’s “Bridge To Terabithia” The Midget Green Swamp Moose offers the reader a charming visit to rural life and lifestyle at a special time in the recent American past.

In 1963 most of the world was in love with the Kennedy’s and Washington D.C.’s new version of Camelot. But that influence scarcely touches Melanie and Bret Fowler as they tend to chores and attempt to find diversions from summer boredom on their 117 acre family farm in the Florida panhandle.
