Poke Greens for Breakfast: True Stories of Rural Arkansas, Oklahoma Dust Bowl Days, & South Dakota Sheep Wagon Tales
In this book you will see life through a child's eyes, romping with a pet pig, becoming "hobbled" when you're unable to button your drawer-waist, and riding beside Grandpa in his buggy. You will survive the 1919 flu pandemic, suffer through the Great Depression, know the bitter cold of South Dakota Blizzards and discover strength and courage in the lives of isolated sheepherders in the foothills of the Black Hills. Add to this a bit of humor and a lot of wit, and you'll have Poke Greens for Breakfast!
