This book is a collection of articles Pearl Lowe Boyd wrote long ago about growing up on farms and about rural life in the late 1800's and early 1900's. It is folklore at its finest. Among the many topics, it tells of a one room school, of fascinating characters (especially Great Aunt Sally), of sights and sounds and animals and food. It tells of Gyp, the family dog that saved her life twice. It is a fine, warm, humorous legacy for those of us whose ancestors were farmers back when most Americans lived on farms.
