Wild Geese Flying

By Cornelia Meigs
Level 8

Cornelia Meigs’ descriptive writing is such a pleasure to read. Wild Geese Flying, published in 1957, illustrates beautiful moral principles through endearing characters and engaging narrative. The story follows the Milton family as they move to a new town and struggle to fit in with their neighbors. Everyone in the town seems to have something against the Milton family, and Dick Milton is determined to find out why. He begins to find clues with the help of his brother Roddy and their mother, and readers will anxiously await each new piece of the puzzle. This gentle, lovely book is a far cry from action-packed best sellers today, filled with shock value. Wild Geese Flying is out of print (at the time of this review), but if you can find a copy, you can sit back and relax as you are taken back in time to the beauties of a close family in a more simple time.
