you ever wondered what life was like a hundred years ago? Long before
your parents were born? Or even your grandparents? This story
tells of growing up on a garm at the beginning of the 20th century.
Else Lee tells us what it was like to be a child during that time.
She tells of chores around the farm including milking the cows, helping
with the planting and the harvesting. She tells us about lard soap,
baths in front of the wood stove, making butter and canning fruits and
vegetables. To find out what life was like 100 years ago, read the
true story of THE GROWING SEASONS by Elsie Lee Splear.
