Abstract:

A walk in fields once left in search of "greener" pastures, now again home ... the rememberance of a youngster's first sneaked cigar ... a night of demand and joy for a country veterinarian ... rediscovery of the rural rite of shivery ... the loss of hopes and property and the beginning of new new careers. These and many other stories dot teh fields, farmsteads and samll, rural communities of Iowa in numbers equal to its people. A select few stories written by the Iowans who experienced them and printed here will bring a chuckle, a sigh and perhasp a tear to the readers as they share the eperiences ... and recall their own. -- from the back cover.
