I liked it because it is history and I live in Wisconsin. I feel certain that, although it was directed to a particular rural area and state, there is a lot here that is applicable to any rural area of the time. It is sprinkled with anecdotes and period photographs, and this adds to it's appeal. However, it is somewhat pedantic at times, and it is rather dry reading. If you are a history buff and/or an educator, it has distinct appeal. This book was provided by the author or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of LibraryThing.

Having attended a one room school for eight years, this book brought back memories of those wonderful days. Our education was wonderful. It was more than just book learning. We learned to share and get along with others and to help each other. The big kids helped the little ones. I do have to dispute one comment in the book. In our community in four years, three of the valdictorians of the high school came from our one room school.
