About this title


The author reminisces about her childhood days spent in Kinta, Oklahoma, where her father served as a school principal for six years. This memoir which goes back a piece this time -- in fact the earliest possible rivulet in this biography fleuve, namely remembering (more than you could think possible) the family's move to Kinta, Oklahoma, when she was four. She writes of her forebears, several generations back; another (interesting one) on the Choctaw Indians who were forced to move to this part of the world in a harsh exodus; and then she settles down to personal, things -- her recognition (still at four) that Kinta was the \"\"hub of the earthly world.... and the sky\"\"; a ride in a railroad caboose; a Confederate Reunion in Charleston; a less comfortable train trip when she locked herself in the rest room; etc.
