Have you ever smelled the prairie dust when the wind blows the rain? You will when you read "Along the Backroads of Yesterday." Stories on the pages of this book will take you back to a time that you will wish you lived. I laughed out load and cried time and again. I often caught myself smiling. I didn't want the book to end! These stories bring back memories of mules, supper left in the warming oven and apple pie with crusts made of lard. They talk of simpler times, and life... way back when. I recommend this book to anyone who longs for those days, times when kids were kids and boys grew up to be men.
