Description: Purple boards with gilt lettering on spine. Clean and unmarked. 392 pages. Illustrated with many black-and-white photographs. 11 x 8.5 inches. Dust jacket in an archival mylar sleeve.

Written by 324 old-timers (and not-so-old-timers), who remember what life was really like in Southwest Minnesota back in the early years of the twentieth century. These people come from all walks of life and their viewpoint is of people who actually experienced history. They're familiar with the tribulations of the Great Depression; the horrible taste of castor oil; ''outdoor'' plumbing; party line phones; and countless other experiences unknown to today's generation.
