The author describes her years as a pupil in the one-room schoolhouse on Post Road in rural Rutland Town, Vermont during the 1940s. The simple pleasures enjoyed by the children and their families then, and the hardships taken for granted, are remembered with humor and perhaps a tear. These are the last years of the old one-room Post Road School's career, and likewise the career of its teacher, Agnes Sergent, to whom the book is dedicated.
Illustrations and old photos enhance these recollections of an era now long gone.
