This is the first in a trilogy of autobiographical books about life growing up on the Canadian prairies. Mainly full of humourous incidents, there are some serious topics too. The Halloween story of planning to explode a WW I grenade in the Chinese restaurant with the owner asleep upstairs gives a view of the racism that could raise its ugly head in the 1920's. The fact that the incident ended up backfiring on the perpetrators in a humourous way didn't reduce the ugliness of the plan.

The volume is full of details about life in small town Western Canada in the period 1910 to 1930 such as the education system, children's adventures, influence of the church, and harvesting the wheat crop. ( )
