With fond reminiscences and nostalgic cartoons, Bob Artley takes readers back to his little country schoolhouse, Marion No. 7, in Iowa’s Franklin County. Readers will share farm boy Artley’s first-day agonies, the long walks to and from school, the school yard games, the Christmas program, and the annual picnic—all recalled with his characteristic humor and insight.
Everything that Artley experienced—from the smell of scorched mittens left too long on the stove to dry to the excitement of performing in the school program—is recalled here with delightful details, providing life lessons and delightful, warm memories.
Artley is considered one of the country’s foremost recorders of farm history. His wonderful artwork and stories reflect his sense of country nostalgia and farm heritage and speak to anyone with a farming background and to those who yearn for simpler times.
