I Wonder as I Wander

$ 16.00

"A moving story of hope and love, woven around a Christmas hymn. in an author's note, Swain explains how, in 1933, a girl named Annie Morgan sang the title song to John Jacob Niles, a collector of folksongs, at a revival in Murphy, NC. The fictionalized tale that follows describes how Annie mourns for her mother: `I still can't figure how she could have died in spring, when there's so much life just bursting from the ground and the tree branches.' She and her itinerant preacher father wander the country, speaking to any folks who will listen to them. Annie composes a song to express her religious questions, which she sings to a crowd. . This book is a treasure."-School Library Journal
