"Delightful text and drawings."-Bookmark
Written with humor and zest and enhanced with the author's charming, historically accurate drawings, this book takes readers on a leisurely journey through a bygone era, along tree-shaded, winding roads that lead to sturdily built farmhouses and fields set off by rustic fences and walls. Brimming with anecdotes about people and the times, this delightful narrative remains a genuine and permanent contribution to the field of Americana.
