In an ancient time when Winter reigned and ice and darkness covered the land, a young boy s heroic and unselfish act helps his people find the shelter of southern trees. But Winter isn t finished yet and shakes the leaves from the trees. To show his gratitude to the trees, the boy uses all his strength and perseverance to help bring back the leaves. This wonderful tale gives hope that, even though Winter can never be vanquished, there is promise of the coming Spring."
