Medium Digital Book
Narrator Clancy, Michael.
Annotation Young George Stewart moved from the plains of Kansas to a Colorado mountain region where he spent an early boyhood among miners, ranchers, and human and animal characters of every description. The years were filled with hard work, old timer's stories, contests of skill, and schooling. But if life in Colorado was difficult in those days of few railroads and no automobiles, the author's teenage years in Idaho's Payette Valley were more so. The poverty stricken family moved into that raw, arid country when the boy was fourteen. Tales of taming the land, irrigation problems, the changing seasons, threshing and harvesting, death, friends and community spirit, horses, mules and coyotes are recalled in vivid, often poetic, prose.1970.
