MEDIA REVIEWS

"Readers familiar with the picturesque towns of Cobden, Anna, Jonesboro, Alto Pass, and Dongola will delight in this memoir by Edith Rendleman, who's lived all of her life in Union County. . . Edith tells of a bygone era with a freshness and simplicity that makes one feel like this all happened last week. . . Reading her book is like leafing through an old photograph album."--"Springfield""State"" Journal-Register"


"Recalling the details of a long and well-remembered life, these memoirs communicate a way of living far different from that lived now. In the small and large details of daily life, this account reveals many of the changes that worked a revolution in farm life. It is told neither to celebrate the pastthat life was far too difficult and loveless to wish to return tonor to celebrate the present there is too much heartache and loneliness for that. Rather, Edith seems motivated by an urge to communicate across the generations, to break through the loneliness imposed by being formed in a different time, a time that those raised since World War II have difficulty imagining."Jane Adams, from the Introduction"
