SummaryAdd a Summary
Elsie leads a happy life in Boston, even after her mother’s death. However, her father finds that the city reminds him too much of his beloved wife, so he packs up Elsie and their belongings and sets off for a sod house in Nebraska to start a whole new life. Young Elsie is allowed to bring her canary Timmy Tune along with her, and he quickly becomes the one bright spot in the midst of her severe Boston homesickness. One day while her father is out, Timmy escapes from Elsie’s cage and without thinking the girl plunges into the thick of the tall grasses to find him once more. What she finds along with her bird, however, is a sudden love for the songs of the prairie birds and the sheer thick of Nebraskan nature. And by the time her father returns with chickens and a dog, “Elsie loved them all for they turned her house into a true prairie home.”
