The Seven Wonders Of Sassafras Springs

Betty G. Birney's The Seven Wonders Of Sassafras Springs is the story of a boy called Eben. Eben's father tells Eben that if he can find seven wonders in Sassafras Springs, he would buy Eben a ticket to Colorado to see the Rocky Mountains. I liked watching Eben find wonders this small town that wasn't even on maps. He finishes his task with an apple head doll, an old bookshelf, a musical saw, a ghost table, a ship in a bottle, a rag with a name on it, and a wood carving of Sassafras Springs. It's a fun book!
