Summary "Edith Bradley Rendleman's story of her life in southern Illinois is remarkable in many ways. Recalling the first half of the twentieth century in great detail, she vividly cites vignettes from her childhood as her family moved from farm to farm until settling in 1909 in the Mississippi bottoms west of Wolf Lake. She recounts the lives and times of her family and neighbors during an era gone forever." "Remarkable for the vivid details that evoke the past, Rendleman's account is rare in another respect: memoirs of the time - usually written by people from elite or urban families - often reek of nostalgia. But Rendleman's memoir differs from the norm. Born poor in rural southern Illinois, she tells an unvarnished tale of what it was really like growing up on a tenant farm early this century."--Jacket.
