Overview

Meet "Pike County Patsie", the youngest of 13 Dunker children, as she relives her growing up years in a farm home just across the shining Mississippi from Mark Twain's Hannibal, Missouri.

You'll laugh and cry over the adverntures and escapades of Pat's close-knit, fun-loving famly who lived by the old values of hearth and home. There's Mom Dunker's "gentleman cow", Dad's Christmas gelatine, a mysterious corpse, a marauding tomcat called Slick Blue, sparrows in a brother's wedding bed, and much, much more.

From wild horseback rides to Model A Fords, home-made bread to "mouse pies", here are memories of the pleasures and hardships of country living you'll never forget.

Author Pat Likes teaches English at Hannibal-LaGrange College. Pat and husband, Marvin, parents of three children, live in Barry, Illinois.
