Pigtails and Pigweed

Memoir of My Rural Childhood

by Iris Maria Goebel
Publication Date: 12/12/2013
RRP  $23.48 $23.25
In this reflective memoir, the author shares the rural lifestyle she lived as a child in Central Alberta, Canada, during and after the world-wide Great Depression of the 1930s. Discover what it was like for the author to grow up at the end of an era when most farm houses had no electricity, no running water, no telephones, and when most farmers were still using horses to farm their land. Read about the many challenges and a near-death experience her family faced during this time period. But all was not gloom and doom. This was an idyllic time, when life was still lived at a slower pace, when community living was largely centered around the one-room rural schoolhouse, and when neighbors always helped one another in times of need. Readers will soon find themselves transported to a bygone era.
