Overview

Whitefoot: A Story from the Center of the World by Wendell Berry, Davis Te Selle


Whitefoot is a field mouse, a small creature with “elegant whiskers” and a “reddish brindly tan” coat. She lives within a cozy enclave of family at the edge of the woods, where she knows, without a doubt, that she exists at the center of her world. What she doesn’t know is that not far from her safe haven there is a house, and a river, a world of such size and magnitude that she cannot even imagine it, small as she is.

One day, rain floods Whitefoot’s home, lifts her in its currents, and carries her far away, leading Whitefoot on a great adventure—one in which she must encounter new experiences and frightening challenges to her survival. The discovery of the universe around her, and of her own ability to survive within it, is a lesson sure to resonate with children and adults alike.

It teaches us that the center of our world can change but that it does not necessarily change who we are.
