Our story today is called 'Prelude'. It was written by Edgar Valentine Smith. Here is Kay Gallant with the story.

Salina Joe Hutshel was born in a cabin that had two rooms, one small window, and a dirt floor. Her parents, Shag and Marty Hutshel, built the little house in one day with the help of their families and friends.

Salina Joe began to talk when she was one-year old. By the time she was seven, her parents couldn't answer any of her questions. Salina Joe's big black eyes were full of curiosity, but her mind stayed hungry. Her parents sent her to school for six months. They took her out as soon as she learned to read and write. Her parents had never learned.

Salina Joe had to work on the farm. She planted corn and sweet potatoes in the hard red earth. She fed the cows and built fences. She cleaned the cabin and chopped wood. She did all the cooking and washed all the clothes.

Her parents spent most of their time with the uncles, aunts and cousins in the family who lived nearby. All the Hutshels were like Salina Joe's parents. They couldn't read or write. They didn't like to work and they never took baths.

One Sunday when Salina Joe was sixteen years old, her parents took her to the town of East Field. As they walked down the street, Salina Joe heard someone behind her whisper, 'Those are part of the Hutshel family. They are all dirty, lazy people who never work.'

A few days later, Salina went back alone to East Field. She went into one of the stores. It was only a simple country store. But to Salina Joe, it seemed like a wonderful place. She looked at silk ribbons and soft leather shoes. Salina Joe had never owned a pair of shoes or a silk ribbon. In the back of the store, she found a dress. It was made of red cotton material with little snow white squares on it. Salina Joe couldn't stop touching the dress. She asked the store's owner, 'How much the dress cost?'

'Five dollars,' he said, 'but I'll sell it to you for three.'

That evening after dinner, she told her father about the dress.

One Sunday when Salina Joe was sixteen years old, her parents took her to the town of East Field. As they walked down the street, Salina Joe heard someone behind her whisper, "Those are part of the Hutshel family. They are all dirty, lazy people who never work."

A few days later, Salina went back alone to East Field. She went into one of the stores. It was only a simple country store. But to Salina Joe, it seemed like a wonderful place. She looked at silk ribbons and soft leather shoes. Salina Joe had never owned a pair of shoes or a silk ribbon. In the back of the store, she found a dress. It was made of red cotton material with little snow white squares on it. Salina Joe couldn't stop touching the dress. She asked the store's owner, "How much the dress cost?"

"Five dollars," he said, "but I'll sell it to you for three."

That evening after dinner, she told her father about the dress.
