Now the special English program, American stories.

Our story today is called Prelude.It was written by Ego Valentine Smith.Here is Kate Gelas with the story.

Salina Joy Hasle was born in a cabin that had two rooms,one small window and a dirt floor.Her parents Shorg and Mardy Hasle built the little house in one day with the help of their families and friends.Salina Joy began to talk when she was one year old. By the time she was 7,her parents couldn't answer any of her questions.Salina Joy'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 learnt to read and write.Her parents had never learnt.Salina Joy had to work on farm.She planted corn and sweet potatoes in a hard,red earth.She fed the cowes and built fences.She cleaned the cabin and chopped wood.She did all the cookie 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 Hasles were like Salina Joy's parents.They couldn't read or write,they didn't like to work and they never took bags.

One Sunday, when Salina Joy was 16 years old,her parents took her to the town of East View.As they walked down the street,Salina heard someone behind her whispered:"Those are part of the Hasle family,they are all dirty,lazy people,never work."

A few days later Salina went back alone to East View.She went into one of the stores.It was only a simply country store.But to Salina Joy it seemed like a wonderful place.She looked at silk rivins and sofe leather shoes.Salina Joy had never owned her a pair of shoes or a silk rivin.In the back of the store,she found a dress.It was made of red carten material with little snow white square on it.Salina Joy couldn't stop touching the dress.She asked the store owner how much the dress costed.

Five dollars,He said,but I will sell it to you for three.

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