Salamanca, a 13-year old girl, is on a car trip out to the western United States with her grandparents. Along the way, she tells them the story of her friend Phoebe and mysterious happenings in the new town to which she and her father have recently moved. Sal is hoping her grandparents will hurry on their trip so she can visit her mother who has disappeared. This moving, mysterious, and poignant book is a Newbery Award winner.

Along the trip, Sal and her grandparents visit Mount Rushmore, Old Faithful, and other national monuments. Helen Keller traveled widely in the United States, including the Midwest and western part of the country such as Oklahoma, Ohio, Texas, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, California, Oregon, and Washington. She also made tours of the United States visiting soldiers wounded in World War II in hospitals across America.
