The Bean Trees (Novel Excerpt)

The Bean Trees is the story of Taylor Greer, a young girl crossing the USA in her old car. She is literally speaking on the road in search of herself and her roots. All of a sudden she finds herself in charge of a Cherokee child, Turtle, and her life is changed for ever.
