"A coming of age story with Midwestern kindness and skeptical undertones in 1930s dustbowl Iowa. The music created by American composer Aaron Copland and librettist Horace Everett (aka Erik Johns), who were inspired to write this opera when viewing photographs of that era, for the NBC Television Opera Workshop. A true piece of Americana and Midwestern life".
