You Get More Corn In a Crooked Row
This book is an honest but obviously biased look back at the first 21 years of life growing up on a small farm in Southern Illinois. Experiences in the local church, one-room school, and in the community are remembered with a mixture of awe and trepidation. The 21 years cover the time immediately before, during, and after World War II. This gives a glimpse of farm life from the perspective of a wide-eyed, reflective, humorous but usually respectful boy growing into maturity during this exciting time of history. Regardless of your background, you will find yourself lurking somewhere within the pages of the book. If you don’t find yourself, count your blessings and chalk it up to your superior upbringing.
