About the Book

Is burning down the garage really the best way to enliven a boring Saturday afternoon? Is it possible to cut your contributions to the church by 75% without incurring divine retribution? How do you reinstate rationality when military thinking goes out of control? Can you effectively dispose of a bucket of dirty scrub water by throwing it out the window? Can you ban puberty? Most importantly, how do you do all of this when you are under the age of twelve? Find the answers and much more in a little town called Paxton.

A closely-knit family living in a small rural community during the nineteen-fifties and 'sixties provides the setting for this delightful collection of stories. With gentle humor, the authors take you along as they revisit their childhood and share some of the trials and joys of growing up. By the time you turn the last page, you will be eagerly looking forward to another visit.
