Flames crawl nearer and nearer to the water. There was no escape by land because of fire on each side of the water. Rabbits quickly hopped out of the brush towards the beach, but they didn’t move when a lynx ran past. Two does gallop past timber; a fox and…

Summer and Autumn

Summer came. Paddle was halfway up the Michigan coast and lots of things were happening. Cows and horses grazed in green meadows. Cool breezes ruffled the grain and slowly turned windmills. Wagons of hay creaked into old barns. Soon summer turned into autumn, and grapes, corn and apples needed to…

The Shipwreck

But a lighthouse signaled that help coming! The tired-out men fought towards the new hope of land. A lifeboat slowly crawled towards them. A cord shot towards the boat and caught it. The lifeboat sailed away with the other end. The ship reared up and crashed down. The men ran…
