'With reverence and warmth the author writes and paints his memories of boyhood on a 1930 prairie farm in winter. The narrative is colorful and interesting...the illustrations, one for each of twenty brief flashbacks, are rich in texture and painted in the American folk-primitive style; nearly all are small triumphs which can stand alone.' ---BooklistFrom the Inside Flap:
