“Day’s Bottom?” I asked. “Where’s that?”
“Far off yonder,’ Grandpap said. “A place of light and wonderment.”
“But where is it?”
“Wisht I knew. I never could locate it.”

Grandpap winked at me. “Might could take two people. How ‘bout you look high and I look low?”
Jane-Ery’s heart is torn in two when her daddy dies in a sawmill accident. No more silly songs. No one to call her Miss Mousie. Now Grandpa’s come down from Salter’s Mountain to help her and her mother. Jane-Ery’s not much interested, until he tells her about Day’s Bottom, where a girl can find anything she wants.
