Books Info:

Snow Comes to the Farm free pdf "Winter had come. The bare trees and grey hills said so. The frozen ground and ice on the pond said so." A day comes, after the leaves have fallen and the wild geese have left for warmer places when the air holds its breath, still and full of expectation. Snow is coming, and soon farmland and forest, ground and sky will be transformed. This is the story of two brothers, waiting and watching in Owl Woods for the first snow of winter, told with quiet drama and grace and illustrated with paintings of astonishing beauty.

About Nathaniel Tripp

Nathaniel Tripp is the author of Father, Soldier, Son, a memoir of the Vietnam War and a finalist for the National Book Award in the United States. He has lived on a farm in northern Vermont since 1973. He was inspired to write Snow Comes to the Farm from his own love of watching the weather. "I've been keeping a weather journal since I was ten," he says. "My idea of a perfect evening is, simply, staying at home in a snowstorm." Nathaniel Tripp lives in northern Vermont with his wife, author Reeve Lindbergh, their son and a collection of barnyard animals. Kate Kiesler has illustrated many books for children, including Crab Moon by Ruth Horowitz. She says of Snow Comes to the Farm, "There is nothing more magical than the first snow. I grew up in Vermont and at the first hint of white, my sister and I had our mittens pulled on, ready to catch those first snowflakes." Kate Kiesler now lives in Colorado.
