When Papa takes the sandalwood he has cut into town, it is fifty miles along sand tracks, and he will be away a long time. Then Lizzie and Mama and baby are all alone in the little house in the bush. Despite the hard work and isolation, Lizzie's playful spirit carries her through, and turns the hardship into fun.

"Strikingly illustrated. . . . Just right for reading aloud. . . . A poignant title that extends the pioneer story beyond the American plains." --Booklist "The text is simple yet evocative, emphasizing the parent-child relationship, while the skillfully rendered watercolors bring the unique setting to life. . . . Works nicely as a satisfying story of the value of imagination, familial affection, and an introduction to pioneer life." --School Library Journal
