The Blossom spirit endures as the family confronts the frailty of human life in Newbery Award-winning author Betsy Byars''s fourth Blossom Family book. It''s a time of ups and downs for the Blossoms. Maggie is thrilled to be the youngest member of the rodeo circuit...until she witnesses Mom kissing a handsome bull rider. Back at home, the family has weathered the worst flood in the state''s history. Now Vern and his friend Michael can''t wait to test their homemade raft down at Snake Creek, but they don''t count on the creek''s raging current.

As Pap clings to life, the Blossoms must rely on the strength of their family and pull together as never before.
