Summaries and Reviews
Shows the workings of a turn-of-the-century prairie town's economy, depicting such scenes as a midsummer pumpkin patch, a backyard full of puppies, and grain elevators across the skyline. description: Product Description:
During the early 1900s, railroad companies laid tracks across America's open land. In fields of grass beside the new tracks prairie towns grew. The towns prospered amid the golden wheat fields, and grain elevators dominated the skyline. Bonnie Geisert's clear text explores the social and economic life of one of these towns, while the dramas of everyday life can be experienced in Arthur Geisert's panoramic hand-colored etchings. Here is a fascinating view of life in a thriving midwestern town, told with respect and affection for the resilient townspeople, as they work and play, their lives directly affected by the changing seasons.
