Synopsis: These were the days....
"There is no such thing as comfort aboard a slow old pony as you head into the teeth of a bitter northwest wind to go 3 1/2 miles to school, with the snow whirling and whipping at your face. But I did have fleece-lined, fur-backed gauntlet mittens that came half way to my elbows, and were wonderful for holding up in front of my face to break a sharp wind."
H. E. Wilkinson also recalls the excitement of riding behind a team of runaway horses, the first day at District School No. 7, and the coming of the R.F.D. and the telephone party line. You'll laugh with him at the memories of his father's disastrous attempts to trade horses.
John Huseby's drawings lend charm and vigor to this story of a farm boy coming of age at the turn of the century in Cerro Gordo County in northern Iowa. Memories of an Iowa Farm Boy covers a period of nearly thirty years - from Wilkinson's birth in 1892 through his years at Iowa State College - during the golden era of Iowa agriculture.
