    ITEM#: 3039986

    Byrd Baylor was born in Texas and now lives in Arizona. Her earlier books includeThe Desert Is Theirs, The Way to Start a Day, and Hawk, I'm Your Brother, all Caldecott Honor Books, as well asEverybody Needs a Rock and I'm in Charge of Celebrations.
    A band of men sat huddled in a cave
    Where coals of fire glowed warm and red.
    Boy lay curled on a bed of leaves
    But he sat up when an old man said: "This thought keeps spinning in my head.
    There must be caves just like our own
    Somewhere
    And other axes made of stone
    Somewhere
    And other men like me."

    Though only Boy shares his dream, the old man leaves the tribe to search for what the world may hold. Boy does the old man's work in his absence and watches hopefully for his return...
    For any good thing
    Can happen when
    The world is full of
    Tribes of men
    Who know that they have brothers.

    First published in 1965 and long out of print, Byrd Baylor's powerful story is newly illustrated with Ronald Himler's vigorous yet tender pictures.
