We are to imagine the photo is the front cover of a book, and are to write a 150 words (no more) as a "blurb" for the back cover, to convince browsers to become buyers immediately.
This photo of greenery on either side of a curving path, with the sun shining down and lighting up some, but not all of the leaves, was taken by Becky Povich.
By Dave E. Crawkit
Becky knew there were raccoons in these woods. She was certain, and equally certain she needed a raccoon cap, with the tail hanging down the back, in order to become a heroine of the Old Wild West.
She wasn’t very old, only six, but her brother Dawson had told her about the Wild Old West. He said all the heroes wore coonskin caps and carried long muskets.
Becky didn’t know much about the requisite outfit, but she'd been told women in the Wide Wild West wore long dresses, aprons, and sturdy boots.
Therefore, heading for the the path in her search for a raccoon, she wore her long nightgown, her mother’s apron tied around her twice, and her winter boots, on that spring day.
When she disappeared, dressed so distinctively, everyone was sure they'd find her easily.
Why couldn’t they? Can Dawson help them? Why not?
