Little Eepersip doesn't want to live in a house with doors and windows and a roof, so she runs away to live in the wild - first in the Meadow, then by the Sea, and finally in the Mountain. Her heartbroken parents follow her at first, bringing her back home to 'safety' and locking her up in the stifling square of the house. But she slips away once more, following her wild heart out of the door and far away...
First published in 1927, The House Without Windows has been described as “a lost classic of children's nature writing”. It tells the story of a young girl who doesn't want to live in a house with doors and windows and a roof, so she runs away to live in the wild.
Jackie first met this story about six years ago and became captivated by the author Barbara Newhall Follett.
"There are so many parallels to The Lost Words. Barbara loved dictionaries. Her literacy, both natural and in words, was so rich.
She loved the wild places, thrived in them, and she created a wild child of perfection in a Utopian dream sequence of a novel".
