The Backyard (2016)

The Backyard is part of a series of tunnel books by Amy Pirkle of Perkolator Press that examines how a shared place can influence sisters in different ways. Amy and her twin sister Sara Pirkle Hughes lived in the Yellow House from age three to seven, and the tire swing in the backyard had a lasting impact on them both. This book features Sara's poem "The Tire Swing."
