Wonder at the Edge of the World

$3.00 USD
Was $19.00 USD

Sorry, All sold out!

ONLY THE VERT BRAVEST SEE THE EDGE OF THE WORLD. I lie down on the grass and hold my breath until a noise like the swooshing of water fills my ears. Soon I can almost feel the earth rocking beneath me. If I squint, the thin streaming clouds against the sky are the sails that guide a ship. On the windward side, the wheat waves through the wind. On the leeward side, the curve of a rocky limestone outcropping is the breaching of a sperm whale, coming up for air. I go on this way for as long as I can. Eventually, though, I have to breathe again. And with the oxygen filling my lungs comes back reality, comes back Bleeding Kansas, comes back Father, dead and gone, and comes back the great responsibility I have of carrying on the Wonder name.

Please Note: Some books may contain identifying marks that have been placed on the book by the publisher, such as a small line or dot on the edge. This is done by the publishers who sell us their returns and excess inventory. All books we sell are new and unread.
