The Table Where Rich People Sit
Byrd Baylor, Peter Parnell
(Perfection Learning, July 1, 1998)
"We're poor", Mountain Girl insists at a family meeting around their homemade kitchen table. Her parents, who love the outdoors and their independent way of life, disagree. And as her family attempts to calculate the value of the desert hills, the colors of blooming cactus, and the calls of eag1es and great horned owls, Mountain Girl realizes that she, too, knows they are rich beyond measure.
