It spun faster and faster. Then everything was still. Absolutely still. He was wearing pants with suspenders and a shirt with the sleeves rolled up. In place of his backpack was a leather bag. Annie was wearing a long dress and a sunbonnet. The sky was cloudy. The tree house had landed in a small grove of trees near a creek.
Beyond the trees was a wide, open prairie. Green grass and wildflowers swayed in a chilly wind. In the distance, a train puffed across the prairie. Sparks of fire came out of its smokestack. Huge clouds of black smoke billowed into the gray sky. Annie looks eye-wide at the book that Jack holds open as they stand in the magic tree house. By the s, steam engines carried people across the Kansas prairie.
Jack packed his things in his leather bag and climbed down after her. When he stepped onto the ground, Jack looked toward the west. The train was gone. Only a thin trail of smoke floated across the sky. She pointed in the other direction. Far away, in the distance, a line of covered wagons rolled through the rippling grass. Their white coverings billowed in the breeze. Jack pulled out the research book. He 12 found a picture of the wagon train. He read aloud: Wagons were the most common way for families to travel west. They could carry clothes, tools, food, and water.
A line of wagons was called a "wagon train. For this reason, covered wagons were sometimes called "prairie schooners. They did look like ships sailing across a rippling green sea. She took off across the grass. Jack put away his things and ran after her. As they ran, the wind began to blow harder. The clouds overhead grew darker. Panting, they watched the wagon train vanish over the horizon. Jack took a deep breath. They looked around. All Jack could see was the distant grove of trees with the tree house.
Streaming from the pipe was a column of black smoke. She and Jack walked up the little hill.
At the top, they saw that the rusty pipe was rising out of a wooden roof. They walked around to the other side of the hill. Beneath the wooden roof was a door. The door seemed to open into the hill itself. The photograph showed the same hill with the door. So pioneers often made their houses out of sod bricks, which were blocks of earth cut out of the prairie. Sometimes a sod house was dug out of the side of a hill. It was called a "dugout. A storm cellar was like a rough basement below the ground. During a twister, a storm cellar is the safest place to be. Then he read on: A pioneer family built this dugout for a home.
When they moved, the dugout became a schoolhouse. The schoolhouse had only one room. It also had a storm cellar beneath it. This is the place! Jack looked up from his writing. Annie ran to the wooden door and knocked loudly. A moment later, the door creaked open. A girl peeked out. Her hair was in a tight bun, as if she were a grownup. But she didn't look more than sixteen or seventeen years old. Miss Neely seemed way too young to be a teacher. You're late.
Several oil lamps lit the darkness. What class? There were only three kids. On one bench sat a small boy and a girl. The boy looked about Annie's age. The girl looked a little younger. On another bench sat a tall boy. He was tough-looking. The family who lived here left for California a week ago," said Miss Neely. Jack and Annie peered around the room. The walls were made of dirt.
The floor was made of wood. It was covered by a worn rug. A small coal stove was near her desk. A crate held a water jug, chalk, and two small blackboards. We're very grateful for it," said Miss Neely. Then he stopped--he wasn't sure what to say. Annie nodded. Jack smiled. Good work, Annie, he thought. Where are you going? That's wonderful! Isn't it, class? The older boy barely nodded. Jack's one of the best readers you'll ever meet.
Isn't that wonderful, class? The older boy gave Jack a scowl. But Jeb didn't move over for Jack, not even an inch. Jack barely had room to sit. He took a deep breath and sat on the end of the bench. Miss Neely handed Jack a book. Please read the first two lines of the poem on page fifty. He turned to page fifty. He pushed his glasses into place. Then he read aloud: "Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are. Jack reads from the book in his hands.
The older boy cleared his throat and stared at the page. She looked confused. Jack felt sorry for Jeb. He wanted to give him some help. Barely moving his lips, Jack whispered, "Up above the world so high, like a diamond--" Jeb turned on Jack with an angry look. Miss Neely sighed and pulled out her pocket watch. She was starting to look tired.
Annie, Kate, and Will bounced up from their seats and started cheerfully out of the schoolroom. Jack turned to Jeb. Jeb just glared at him and didn't say anything. He didn't look back at Jeb. The dark clouds still hovered in the distance. She and Will sat down on the grass. Annie and Jack sat beside them.
Will opened a small burlap sack. He took out four lumpy objects. They looked like dark rocks. He gave a potato each to Kate, Annie, and Jack. Keep it! Kate laughed. She took a big bite out of her potato, too. But Jack just held on to his. He didn't quite feel like eating the cold, brown potato. The big kid didn't seem to have any lunch at all. You want my sweet potato?
Jeb narrowed his eyes. Do that one more time, and I'll fight you. This kid took everything he said the wrong way! You're nothing but a bully, Jeb. But Jeb just laughed. Then he stood up and walked back into the schoolhouse. Jack felt angry. He hoped they would find the special writing soon so they could leave.

Will seemed to have read Jack's mind. The prairie kids nodded. So our pa built us a log cabin. Then rain started to fall. It fell fast and hard. Everyone jumped up.
Come in! They ran back inside. The wind slammed the door behind them with a BANG. Jack sat back on his bench.
He didn't dare look at Jeb. They looked like small blackboards set in wooden frames. Next she gave everyone a slate pen. Each pen was a thin piece of chalk. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw Jeb writing very slowly. It took the older boy a long time just to write the letter T. From the back of the classroom Jack looks at Jeb's slate where he is writing the letter, "t". He didn't want Jeb to think he was showing off. Suddenly, loud thumping sounds came from overhead.
It sounded as if someone were throwing stones against the roof. Grasshopper attack! She covered her head. He covered his head, too. What's a grasshopper attack? What are they talking about? Jack wondered. Even Jeb seemed worried. As Miss Neely started toward the door, he said, "Don't open it! They'll come in! Jack thought. How can grasshoppers hurt anyone? Miss Neely opened the door and looked out. A moment later, she stuck her head back in and closed the door.
Sometimes they fall to earth during a thunderstorm," said Miss Neely. Millions and millions of them came out of the sky," said Will. He'd never heard of a grasshopper attack before. Kate and Will nodded. Everyone was quiet for a moment. Then the sound of the hailstones died away. They all returned to their writing. Even working as slowly as he could, Jack finished first.
He showed his copy of the poem to Miss Neely. But Jack smiled. He knew what Annie was talking about: They had their special writing. They could go home! Jack stood up. He put the slate in his leather bag. As they went out the door, Jack glanced at Jeb. He felt sorry for the older boy.
He tried one last time to be friends. But the boy wouldn't even look at him.
Jack gently closed the door to the schoolhouse. He was glad to get away from Jeb's anger. The sky did look weird--really weird. They all seemed to be going in different directions. The greenish clouds had dipped down close to the prairie. When they got to the ladder of the tree house, they looked back. In the distance, twisting black clouds had dropped out of the storm clouds. They were swirling into a funnel shape. The dark funnel started twisting across the prairie.
Jack's heart nearly jumped out of his chest. He grabbed the rope ladder and started up. They might not know about it! He looked up at the tree house. All they had to do was climb up and leave, and they'd be safe. But what about Miss Neely? What about Will and Kate and Jeb? He jumped down from the ladder. The roaring sound of the twister followed them. Suddenly, the wind threw them to the ground! Jack clutched the tall grass, trying to stand.
When he got up, he grabbed Annie's hand. He pulled her up, too. With all his might, Jack held on to Annie and pulled her along. The roaring twister came closer and closer. The wind ripped up grass and earth around them.
