Overview

Born in 1946 and living in a four-room house with no indoor plumbing, Saundra takes us back to the 1950s when two-room schoolhouses and country stores were part of every small community in eastern Kentucky. Each chapter is filled with stories about relatives and neighbors who impacted her childhood. Whether it is Aunt Violet from Detroit on a summer visit and wearing high heels, nylon hose and a tight-fitting girdle and complaining that the sweat was "souring" her hair, or whether it is the memory of her mom wringing the neck of the chicken that is going to be Sunday dinner, the reader is transported to a simpler time. A time when finding a penny was worth the effort it took to pick it up. A time when a child had fun spending hours making mud pies in a newly dug toilet pit. A time before interstate highways, shopping malls, and Wal-Mart. A time when the only thing homogenized was the milk she drank.
