Sixteen-year-old Peggy has gone north to plant trees for the summer. On a visit to a petroglyph site, she is abruptly transported to Notherland, an imaginary world she created when she was seven. There, she learns that Mi, a spirit-child who lives in the northern lights, has gone in search of a mythical "shining world." Fearing for her safety, Peggy and her Notherland companions—Gavi the philosopher loon, Molly the pirate-doll, and a mysterious young man named Jackpine —set out in search of Mi.

"Like all good imaginary worlds, Notherland is both familiar and strange...historical settings are well researched and vivid...characters and plot are at the forefront."
