Description
Deemed one of the Ten Best Books of the Year by the New York Times Book Review, Mildred Kalish's memoir of growing up fatherless on her grandparents' Iowa farm during the Great Depression is far from a litany of struggle; it is rather the joyous story of a childhood that "built character, fed the intellect, and stirred the imagination." Recipes and how-tos—for everything from catching and skinning a rabbit to preparing homemade skin and hair products—season a story of hardship, hard work, and equally hard play in a large and loving family, which made even the bleakest of times seem like "quite a romp."

"This lovely book, so unaffected and so generous, opens the door to a past I knew as a child in Iowa, and I wept with joy and recognition as I read it. It deserves a distinguished place next to Hamlin Garland's Son of the Middle Border but, with its deep humility, it would also fit, without a single word of protest, next to the Betty Crocker Cookbook."—Ted Kooser
