Emily's weeping willow becomes a living symbol of the warmth, strength, and history shared by generations of one family.

When Emily's family moves to the ocean of grass called the prairie, she can't help but dream of trees. After building their sod house, ploughing, planting and then harvesting, her Papa tells her there is a little money left over to get something special from the mail-order catalogue. She chooses a willow tree. The Prairie Willow chronicles the life of this little girl and her pioneering family.
