This is the story of Brian O'Connal's childhood in a small town on the
Saskatchewan prairie. It's full of memorable characters and even some
amusing scenes in the life of a small town. I especially enjoyed Brian's
first visit to the farm when he lived with his uncle for a time. The
dialect sometimes made it difficult to read, but it's a book that would
make a terrific read aloud for elementary aged children. The physical
dimensions of the book I borrowed through interlibrary loan made it
somewhat uncomfortable to read, but the illustrations made up for it.
