This text presents oral life histories of 14 rural Southeastern Ohio career teachers from the early to mid-20th century. It aims to illustrate what it was like being a child in a one-room school, the preparation teachers made, and the impact teaching had on their personal lives. The author states that the data suggest that small schools accomplish educational goals, are more personal, and more flexible in meeting the needs of children. The book states that the history of schooling in the Midwest has been over-generalized, and aims to contradict the bleak and dismal stereotype.
