Growing up in a small town early in the last century that
experience is one of the great idyls of America. But what was it
really like? To Gene Howard, who was born in 1917 in the tiny town
of Blunt, South Dakota, those were good times, but hard times, too. His
fascinating letters to his grandchildren describe them all: the strong
family ties, the "characters," the stolen hours of fishing and fun, and
the weary summers through which a young boy ran his uncle's horse-drawn
mowing machine from can-see to can't-see.
The narrative formed by these letters also tells the larger, timeless
story of the courage and integrity that helped to build our great
country. It gives a human face to the deep privations caused by the
Great Depression. And best of all, it shares with us the warm sense of
belonging in a place where everybody really does know your name!
