Miss Bridie emigrates to America in 1856 and chooses to bring a shovel, which proves to be a useful tool throughout her life. The journey begins for a young immigrant named Miss Bridie. It is a journey of hope and uncertainty, a journey that will take her to a new land, a new home, and, if she has chosen wisely, a good life. With elegant woodcuts, Caldecott medalist Mary Azarian brings to life Leslie Connor's spare story of a life rich with blessings, yet not without challenges. Here is a lyrical tribute to the millions of immigrants who left their homes to begin anew in America, and an enchanting look at how one woman carves out a life with the help of a common shovel
