By Jeanie Sullivan
This is a fact-based fictional story of young Nora Shuford, the daughter of one of Hickory’s most prominent pioneer families. Author Jeanie Sullivan has expertly captured the spirit of hope and excitement from a child’s perspective in western North Carolina of the 1880’s. Children of the 2nd to 4th grade reading level will especially enjoy Nora’s Dream, but the age for all readers of this wonderful book is timeless.
The Book is a creative combination of two separate 28-page English language and 28-page Spanish language versions. All pages contain unique, colored illustrations by artist Robert Winter, a professor of art at Lenoir-Rhyne College in Hickory. The skillful design, layout, and publication is the work of American Speedy Printing Company of Hickory.
