CHASING REDBIRD is about a girl who is wandering on her family's farm and discovers an old trowel covered with weeds and dirt. The girl who discovers the trowel is named Zinny. Zinny has three sisters and three brothers who also want to help out with the trail but in just a few days, Zinny's brothers and sisters lose interest in the trowel. So, the trail is left for Zinny to discover. If you want to find out how Zinny clears the trail and her summer adventures, you can read CHASING REDBIRD by Sharon Creech.
