Far Out the Long Canal Far Out the Long Canal

by DeJong, Meindert

In the coastal village of Wierum, at the edge of the Sea, practically everyone could skate except the very littlest children ... and Moonta Riemersma, who was already nine. When ice finally came to the ditches and canals, Moonta was afire with enthusiasm, not only to learn to skate, but to let his skates lead him on to And when he heard of something called the New Church’s Pipe, far out the long canal, he was determined to find it at any risk. Ages 10 and up. Another classic from an award-winning American author. The village of Wierum is his birthplace. (Anyone wanting to read more about what it was like to grow up in rural The Netherlands a century ago, will be rewarded generously by obtaining this book.)
