First published in 1988, Yonder by Tony Johnston, illus. by Lloyd Bloom, uses a plum tree to trace the generations of a 19th-century farm family. ""There comes the farmer with a brand-new bride,/ Riding down the hills that roll forever."" Bloom's lush oils capture the verdant hillside and the country's untamed beauty.
