This book is a compilation of short stories set in rural Oklahoma in the 1940s. It depicts the early life of three brothers, who lost their mother and went to live with their grandparents. They had no electric lights, no refrigeration, no air conditioning, no running water, and no indoor toilet. They did not know of television, computers, video games, or the internet. And yet they were happy.
This book has no plot-per se, but the stories give an insight into the brothers lifestyle in a small Oklahoma farming community.
The book has significant historical value and a touch of nostalgia for a bygone era. It is a light-hearted and fun read.
