"AMANDA ELIZABETH SHAW, will you please hurry up? I'd like to get home sometime before dark," Joe teased. He stood at the schoolhouse doorway waiting. "Joe Woodard, if you call me all that mouthful again, I'll--I'll just walk home by myself," Mandie replied. "All my friends call me Mandie." She hastily tied on her bonnet and slipped into her lightweight coat, then reached to pick up her books from her desk. Mr. Tallant, the schoolmaster of the one-room country schoolhouse, glanced at the two from his desk. "I appreciate y'all staying to help me straighten up, but you need to get going. It does get dark early now that fall has come." "We're on our way. Good night, Mr. Tallant," Mandie said, tucking a stray lock of golden blond hair under her bonnet. She crossed the huge room to the door. "Good night," Joe said. "We will see you bright and early tomorrow morning, since this is just Wednesday and we've got two more days to go before that lazy day called Saturday gets here." The schoolmaster smiled as they left the schoolroom. Mandie stepped outside onto the front porch of the log schoolhouse. The sun was already setting behind the tall chestnut trees down the road. She squinted her blue eyes, trying to see how much farther the sun had to go before it would actually drop out of sight over the mountain ahead. Darkness came early to Charley Gap, North Carolina, nestled in the shadow of the huge Nantahala Mountains. Joe brushed past her down the steps. "Come on, slowpoke," he teased. "I'm not as slow as you," Mandie said, rushing past him down the long lane toward the main road. She stopped to look back. "We don't have to walk that fast, do we?" Joe asked. He caught up with her and reached to take her books. "Are you going to let me carry these, or are you put out with me?" Mandie gave him her books. "No, Joe, I'm not put out with you. I was just thinking about wintertime coming. Thanksgiving and Christmas will soon be here and 1897 will be gone." "And we'll have a brand-new year," Joe added as they walked on. "Only two years until we get a brand-new century." She sighed. "I wonder how it will feel."

Lois Gladys Leppard

Lois began her first Mandie story when she was only 11 years old. But eventually the manuscript was tucked away in a drawer and forgotten. Lois went on to attend Furman University and studied music for several years in New York City where she and her sister sang professionally. Some years ago, Lois was prompted to pull that old manuscript out and began to work on Mandie's story - of her childhood in the South at the turn of the century and her Cherokee heritage. The rest is history - and now the Mandie books series have sales nearing six million copies! Lois writes from her home in South Carolina. Enthusiastic young fans fill her mailbox with their insightful responses to her stories. - Publisher.

Excerpt

Excerpt from: Who's Mandie? (#01 in Young Mandie Series)

:"AMANDA ELIZABETH SHAW, will you please hurry up? I'd like to get home sometime before dark," Joe teased. He stood at the schoolhouse doorway waiting.

"Joe Woodard, if you call me all that mouthful again, I'll--I'll just walk home by myself," Mandie replied. "All my friends call me Mandie." She hastily tied on her bonnet and slipped into her lightweight coat, then reached to pick up her books from her desk.

Mr. Tallant, the schoolmaster of the one-room country schoolhouse, glanced at the two from his desk. "I appreciate y'all staying to help me straighten up, but you need to get going. It does get dark early now that fall has come."

"We're on our way. Good night, Mr. Tallant," Mandie said, tucking a stray lock of golden blond hair under her bonnet. She crossed the huge room to the door.

"Good night," Joe said. "We will see you bright and early tomorrow morning, since this is just Wednesday and we've got two more days to go before that lazy day called Saturday gets here."

The schoolmaster smiled as they left the schoolroom.

Mandie stepped outside onto the front porch of the log schoolhouse. The sun was already setting behind the tall chestnut trees down the road. She squinted her blue eyes, trying to see how much farther the sun had to go before it would actually drop out of sight over the mountain ahead. Darkness came early to Charley Gap, North Carolina, nestled in the shadow of the huge Nantahala Mountains.

Joe brushed past her down the steps. "Come on, slowpoke," he teased.

"I'm not as slow as you," Mandie said, rushing past him down the long lane toward the main road. She stopped to look back.

"We don't have to walk that fast, do we?" Joe asked. He caught up with her and reached to take her books. "Are you going to let me carry these, or are you put out with me?"

Mandie gave him her books. "No, Joe, I'm not put out with you. I was just thinking about wintertime coming. Thanksgiving and Christmas will soon be here and 1897 will be gone."

"And we'll have a brand-new year," Joe added as they walked on.

"Only two years until we get a brand-new century." She sighed. "I wonder how it will feel."
