Five Pennies A Prairie Boy's Story (Paperback)
|Author: Irene Morck|
|Bed bugs, farm animals, and hard work were all a part of growing up on a western Canadian homestead in the 1920s. Five Pennies captures the joys and hardships experienced by a young boy living the pioneer life.|
Author Irene Morck assembled this collection of short stories from the memories of her father, Archie Morck, who lived on a pioneer farm in the Canadian prairies. His recollections bring to life the people and values of this earlier time, as well as a child's wonder at the adventures offered by each new day.
Told with humor and style, these stories recall the excitement of the first day of school, the challenges of a first summer job, and, of course, the immeasurable wealth of having five pennies to spend. The warmth of early family life on the prairies shines through on every page, making this a wonderful book for all ages.
