Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren. Here are the first lines:
This beginning seems especially vivid to me. It makes me think of the times I've hiked and panted and sweated like that. And then it sparks my interest because the farmer has something for them to see. What is it? It is absolutely required that I read on to find out what they're looking for!We paused on our hike, panting and wiping our upper lips as our guide--the old Italian farmer who owned this land--chopped down a small sapling, clearing the overgrown trail. "Ecco, vedi," he said, pointing at the ground. See, here.
