MEDIA REVIEWS
"You' re in for a treat as you turn these pages, while Imhoff reminisces about the simplicity of country living, the fun of creating your own entertainment, the dark struggles with poverty and illness, rabid dogs and neighborhood bullies, medicine shows and childhood sweethearts."-- Robert J. Hastings, from the Foreword

"It turns out that what we tell about our lives-- when we are really taking inventory-- has little to do with what we own or how we make our daily bread. Rather, we talk about who has touched our lives, of how we lived when we thought it would last forever, and always of home."-- Edgar Allen Imhoff, from the Prologue
