Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's first work was published in a church magazine when she was 16 years old. She paid her way through college, where she majored in clinical psychology, by writing and selling stories. Naylor found that she enjoyed writing so much that she abandoned her plans to attend graduate school. WHAT THE GULLS WERE SINGING, her first published work for children, appeared in 1967. Her 1991 work, SHILOH, was awarded the Newbery Medal.

Editors Note While traveling to her aunt's home in Redbud by train and stagecoach, quiet young Emily and her turtle, Rufus, team up with Jackson, fellow orphan and troublemaker extraordinaire, to outsmart mean Uncle Victor, who is after Emily's inheritance.

On a stagecoach ride west, Emily and another orphan, Jackson, plot escape. Hilarity and witty writing follow. With illustrations.
