In Sarah Whitcher’s Story by award-winning author Elizabeth Yates, little Sarah follows a tiny bird away from her family’s cabin into the thick New Hampshire forest. When night come, Sarah realizes that she is lost. Settlers come from all across the countryside to help find her, but as the long days pass, the searchers grow desperate. In this historical fiction book only Sarah’s father believes that they will find her alive, and few would have expected a bear to have a part in her rescue.
