Sassy’s Vacation is a children’s book geared toward ages 4 to 8. The story is told by Sassy, a snapping turtle who lives in Rountree Branch. Based on a true story, the book follows Sassy who is caught by a little girl named Ruby while fishing with her father. Written by Sue Leamy Kies and illustrated by Ric Genthe, the narrative informs young readers about the lives of snapping turtles in the area and how they survive in winter.


The calendars go for $8, and Sassy’s Vacation for $10. You can feel good about your purchases because all proceeds go toward the upkeep of the trail. You may get your copies at the Driftless Market, 95 W. Main St; the Platteville Regional Chamber, 275 W Business Hwy 151; or Bob Hundhausen’s Edward D. Jones Office, 2 Insight Drive, Suite B.
