This is a surprise find on the shelves. Reading Berry's account of his early childhood travels will strike up memories of your own travels to Grandpa's. The story is rich with axioms and descriptions that will help you relive warm memories of your own upbringing. His colorful reflections of life in the 1940's and the transition from agrarian to industrialization of the US will leave you wishing for the simpler times of your childhood. That coupled with Berry's reflections on how World War II would change everyone's lives makes this a powerful novel. Pick this for your book club! You won't go wrong.

I am very grateful for this story because it has opened up a depth of humanity in simple, small things, that I am prone to forget. While I was born many decades after the events of this story, I have relatives who lived similar stories - visiting grandparents and relatives over the holidays, on small rural farms and towns and seeing the world as it was and as it was changing in some scary, uncomfortable ways. I can certainly relate to this story, because of other stories told to me from relatives who lived just the kind of events that young Andy Catlett did, and who now, decades later, understand and live those kind of events again. I understand this story as well, because I feel, but cannot not really articulate just how the world has changed, and knowing that something, and many things, are indeed missing in modern life. This little novel helps me a bit to articulate those things that are missing. Because this novel is set in the Christmas and New Year's season, I highly recommend it as a way to thoughtfully approach family, family and life that has gone and the days and new year to come. It is certainly a story worth rereading again and again.
