Description - The Snow Goose by Paul Gallico

A modern classic. THE SNOW GOOSE is set in the years running up to the remarkable evacuation of Dunkirk in the Second World War. On the desolate Essex marshes, a young girl, Fritha, comes to seek help from Philip Rhayader, a recluse who lives in an abandoned lighthouse. She carries in her arms a wounded snow goose. Fritha is frightened of Rhayader, but he is gentler than his appearance suggests and nurses the goose back to health. Over the following months and years, Fritha only visits the lighthouse when the snow goose is there. And every summer, when it flies away, Rhayader is left alone once more. Beautifully written, with a powerful ending, and breathtakingly illustrated by Angela Barrett, this is an exquisite edition of Gallico's masterpiece.

Author Biography - Paul Gallico

Paul William Gallico was born in New York City in 1897. He was one of the most well-known sporting writers in America, and a minor celebrity. But he had always wanted to be a fiction writer and eventually retired from sports writing and went to live in Europe to devote himself to writing novels and short stories.Though his name was well-known in the United States, he was unknown to the rest of the world until 1941, when The Snow Goose was published. He died in Antibes in 1976, just short of his 79th birthday. Angela Barrett studied illustration at the Royal College of Art and after graduating in 1980, she began an acclaimed career in children's book illustration. Angela won the Smarties Award in 1988.
