Synopsis: Life for children who grew up in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire’s countryside during the 1940s was simple and less complicated than the hustle and bustle of later decades. It was a time when storekeepers filled your orders and shoe stores actually repaired shoes. Morning chores included milking cows, and an evening out was square dancing at the local high school or going down to the movie theater, where tickets cost twenty-five cents. The towns of Peterborough, Dublin, Jaffrey and Hancock composed part of this picturesque landscape, which still attracts leaf peepers every autumn. Join author Tom Shultz as he chronicles the people and places of this disappearing way of life in the Monadnock region.

About the Author: Tom Shultz is a retired dairy farmer from Lowville, New York. He has written numerous short stories and magazine articles and enjoys reading and writing nonfiction. This is his first full-length book. Tom grew up in Peterborough, New Hampshire, and his time there set the direction for his life. After high school, he attended the University of New Hampshire, earning a bachelor’s degree in dairy husbandry. After serving for three years in the United States Marine Corps, he received an honorable discharge with the rank of sergeant. Tom graduated with a master’s degree in dairy production from Kansas State University and was employed by the New York State Cooperative Extension Service. While on a farm visit to the owner of a Delaware County Jersey herd, he met his future wife, Peggy, one of the farmer’s daughters. After eleven years with Cooperative Extension, Tom fulfilled his dream of having his own dairy farm when he and Peggy bought a 120-acre farm in Lewis County, New York. With the able assistance of sons Mike, Joe, Jim and Tim, they operated a typical family dairy farm with thirty-six registered Holsteins. Upon retirement, he and Peggy sold the farm to their son Joe. Joe and his wife, Sue, now operate the farm with Tom and Peggy’s grandson, Bronson.
