"When Thomas reached the top of the final mesa and looked down on his family's hogan, he finally understood that the war was over.  Thomas's family had no idea he was on his way home until he showed up with his uniform with a seabag over his arm, and the pinch of corn pollen still tucked into his wallet.  "Hi, Mom.,' He said, "I'm home." 

Amy's Bookcase will have books available for purchase. This is a free program.
