Slight shelf wear; A memoir about growing up on a Virginia farm during the hardscrabble years of the 1920s and 1930s. Her mother, a determined and independent woman, managed to make a life for her famiy, despite hardships such as the Depression and a fire that destroyed their home. Although raised in a spare environment where leaky ceilings and cold winter nights were the norm, Dabney finds much to love, and to rejoice over, in her country upbringing: the wonder of hens laying eggs, the sensations asscoiated with milking a cow, her warm friendship with her mother's black maid. The remarkable clarity of her half-century-old memories and her simple, unaffected tone bring this country childhood unforgettably to life. ; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 273 pages;
