Papa Said

( 4 )

Overview

I remembered Papa bringing me to the general store as a child. I could still see the potbellied stove with its chrome footrests on all sides, circled with old oak chairs where the old-timers sat exchanging stories and jokes This was the gathering place for the farmers and old-timers in the area. Papa was the only educated veterinarian for miles around. He knew, when he went into the store, he would be giving free medical advice to anyone who asked. The storm intensified. The rain came down in sheets. The wind ...

Overview

I remembered Papa bringing me to the general store as a child. I could still see the potbellied stove with its chrome footrests on all sides, circled with old oak chairs where the old-timers sat exchanging stories and jokes This was the gathering place for the farmers and old-timers in the area. Papa was the only educated veterinarian for miles around. He knew, when he went into the store, he would be giving free medical advice to anyone who asked. The storm intensified. The rain came down in sheets. The wind became a whirling, threatening monster, tearing at our little frame house. Lightning split the sky open, followed by loud claps of thunder. When lightning flashed, it lit up the whole yard and barn, and I could see Papa climbing the ladder of the windmill. The huge blades flopped wildly in the wind and I could hear the loose chain hit the metal framework. I was so frightened, I could scarcely breathe.

    My copy arrived in the mail today and I couldn't put it down until I came to the very end!!! I am the youngest grandchild of the autor's "Aunt Mae" so it was a wonderful trip down memory lane for me. The author really brought out what everyday living was like in those days.

    This is an amazing book, I had no idea that my dad and brothers

    This is an amazing book, I had no idea that my dad and brothers and sisters all lived in a time where Indians still lived around the area and how they had nothing modern compared to my generation growing up. The trading and horse farming described in detail is fantastic of their generation. It's a fantastic read!

    An easy read that kept my attention throughout. Helped me see more of what pre-depression era rural America was like. I really enjoyed the way she explained the common everyday parts of life such as canning and butchering. You really got a feel of what family really meant to people at that time.

    Each chapter is a great read on its own, and together they paint

    Each chapter is a great read on its own, and together they paint a very real picture of how families got along in that time period. Also interesting is that the stories are shared from the perspective of a younger child's eyes, but granted the humor and experience of age. I loved it.
