Great Aunt Liza is sending Lucy a birthday gift. She puts it in a wooden box with a latch and gives it to her friend to take west to Lucy by mail coach. And that's where the adventure begins. As the box makes its way across the country by the kindness of strangers, each one adds a token of his or her own to Lucy's present. Over rutted roads, past thousands of hogs and some hungry goats, the box finds its way to Lucy. In M.C. Helldorfer's energetic words and S.D. Schindler's exuberant art, a touching and very funny picture of nineteenth-century life emerges.
