Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Anyone who was ever touched by Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie books must read Childhood on the Farm. . . . A remarkably poignant and evocative account that resurrects a vanished world."-Steven Mintz, author of Huck's Raft: A History of American Childhood

"Finally, country children are heard as well as seen. . . . A thoroughly researched, crisply written, and richly illustrated study of an important but neglected subject that adds a valuable new dimension to the field of rural history."-Hal S. Barron, author of Mixed Harvest: The Second Great Transformation in the Rural North, 1870-1930
