Life is difficult for a family trying to make a home and a decent living on the prairies. There are the fields to till, the sod house to build, the crops to tend, and always, the harsh elements to endure. But for her help that year, young Emily can choose the thing she most wants. Surrounded by a vast ocean of grass, a fiat featureless horizon, and an endless sky, she longs most for a tree.
Planted lovingly in the springtime of her life, Emily's weeping willow becomes a living symbol of the warmth, strength and history shared by generations of one family. And it stands as a marker for all those who bravely set roots down in the dark soil of the prairies.
