Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs

Written by Betty G. Birney

Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs Synopsis

When Eben McAllister reads about the Seven Wonders of the World, he longs to escape the small farming community of Sassafras Springs and do some exploring of his own. No one else ever seems to want to leave Sassafras, howevernot even his best pal, Jeband so, for now, Eben figures he's stuck on the farm with Pa and Aunt Pretty until he grows up. All that changes when his pa, tired of Eben's moping, challenges him to find Seven Wonders in Sassafras Springs that can stand up to the real Seven Wonders of the World. And if he does? Then Eben will get the adventure he's been craving fora trip out West. Eben doesn't reckon he'll have any luckhe can't think of even one thing that could be called ';interesting,' let alone wondrous, in Sassafras, but he figures he'll give it a try. Told in a down-home narrative with glimmers of magical realism woven throughout, Betty G. Birney's tale about a boy's journey of discovery reminds us all that extraordinary things can happen in the most ordinary of places . . . even in Sassafras Springs.
