A classic story of Pioneer Michigan.From the Publisher:
Marguerite de Angeli was born in Lapeer, Michigan, in 1889. As a child, she loved to hear her father tell the story of the red leather-topped copper-toed boots he prized when he was a boy.
Recreating the mischievous adventures of that boy through a Michigan summer, "Copper-Toed Boots" escapes to a time of "tradin" with schoolmates, "tradin" at the store, and picnicking during blackberry season. Children of all ages will delight in this realistic portrayal of mid-nineteenth century rural life. From classroom antics to the day the circus comes to town, Marguerite de Angeli vividly depicts the folk happenings of a little American town.
