Moving the Millers' Minnie Moore Mine Mansion: A True Story

It all started when John "Minnie" Moore built a mine in Idaho and sold it to Englishman Henry Miller. Then Henry married a local lass named Annie and built her a mansion, hence the "Millers' Minnie Moore Mine Mansion." After Henry died and Annie was hoodwinked — losing all but the mansion — she and her son took to raising pigs in the yard, as some are wont to do. But the town wanted those pigs out.

Who could have guessed that Annie and her crew would remove the whole mansion instead — rolling it away slowly on logs — while she and her son were still living in it? Author Dave Eggers and artist Júlia Sardà spin a quirky historical event into a whimsical and tall-ish true tale of American ingenuity. Narrated with metafictional flair, this delightfully illustrated picture book is proof positive that nonfiction can be as lively and artful as any storybook.
