Miss Rumphius (N275)
Miss Rumphius (N275)
Miss Rumphius is the life story of Miss Alice Rumphius, otherwise known as the Lupine Lady, as told by her young niece and namesake, Alice.
When she was young, Miss Rumphius set two goals for herself: she would follow in her grandfather's footsteps and travel to faraway places, and then she would settle down in a house by the sea. Her grandfather tells her there is one more thing she must do. She must do something to make the world more beautiful. Little Alice agrees to honor her grandfather's request, but does not know she will do it.
Alice grows up and accomplishes her goals of traveling the world and settling down by the sea. Still, Miss Rumphius wonders how she will make the world more beautiful. Then, one spring day, after having spent many months in bed with a bad back, Miss Rumphius discovers that the lupines she had planted in her garden had now spread to a nearby hill. The beautiful sight gives her an idea.
Miss Rumphius orders five bushels of lupine seed and begins to sow them wherever she goes that summer. The next spring lupines are growing all over her seaside town. Miss Rumphius, now known as the Lupine Lady, has accomplished her grandfather's request by the simple act of planting flowers.
Now a very old woman, Miss Rumphius entertains the neighborhood children with stories of faraway places. Her niece, Alice, says that she will follow in her aunt's footsteps and travel to faraway places, and then will settle by the sea. Aunt Alice tells her that there is one more thing she must do: she must do something to make the world more beautiful.
