New children’s book

Rae Rankin

Just in time to celebrate summer, Rae Rankin released her fourth children’s picture book, “Mountain Girl,” on June 1. Inspired by a girl, her family, and a quaint mountain town, “Mountain Girl” is a charming, easy to read, rhyming story from the Northern California resident. Join the family as they take a vacation to a spot they love to go. Come along as they hike waterfalls, catch crawdads, gaze at the stars and enjoy getting outdoors. Having grown up in Mt. Shasta, Rankin said, “I have always loved small, mountain towns. My husband introduced me to Graeagle nearly 20 years ago.” His family has vacationed in the area for over 40 years. Signed copies of “Mountain Girl” are currently available at Feathers in Graeagle. It is also available online at major book retailers and Amazon. Photos submitted
