Publisher's Summary

It is hay-making time on the Wookey farm. Two brothers are building the haystack, but thinking about other things – about young women, and love. There are angry words, and then a fight between the brothers. But the work goes on, visitors come and go, and the long, hot summer day slowly turns to evening.
Then the sun goes down, covering the world with a carpet of darkness. From the hedges around the hayfield comes the rich, sweet smell of wild flowers, and the hay will make a fine, soft bed.
An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Mark Twain original by Jennifer Bassett.
