Inscribed by Elizabeth Coatsworth "on a sunny Sunday at Chimney Farm." Chimney Farm was the author's home, which she shared with her husband, the nature writer Henry Beston, and their daughter Kate Barnes, Maine's first official Poet Laureate.
The young adult story of a girl who travels to Mexico with her family on a Christmas-time vacation (which appears to be set sometime around the turn of the century). Daisy, an awkward dreamer, through her encounters in this new, vivid environment and with the Mexican culture, grows into a more confident explorer.
