Here's the child's-eye view of Decker, Indiana, with raising baby chicks, twilight children's games, holidays like Decoration Day (now vanished), every kind of delicious food: date pudding, bread pudding, hermits, pocketbook rolls with home-churned butter. The book is a feast in itself celebrating the richness of small town farm culture.

Recipe for Mother's Real Angel Food Cake:

Sift 1-3/4 cups cake flour with 1/2 cup sugar. Beat 12 egg whites with 1-1/4 tsp cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gently fold in the flour mixture and then fold in 1-1/3 cups more sugar. Add 1/3 tsp almond extract. Bake in ungreased 10 inch tube pan 375 for 35–40 minutes. (p. 155)
