Publishers Weekly, 1986-07-25 From the author of Where the River Begins and The Mare on the Hill, this book is Locker's most visually stunning to date. The spare storya girl sails with her uncle down river to the ocean and experiences the full spectrum of nature's beautyis illuminated by the clarity of Locker's narrative oil paintings. With wonderous accuracy, each one expresses a specific time and place, and more importantly, mood in nature. Of all the paintings, though, it is the episode with the coming of the storm, and then the nearness of the rocks, that will grip readers with its frightening reality. Locker has created an enduring work of art. (All ages)
