by Crystal (Carol) Lokken
This is a charming memoir about life in the Village of McFarland, Wisconsin, in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The author, Crystal (Carol) Helmke Lokken, writes about her early years on the family farm, moving to the house on Main Street, school and teachers, attending church, seasonal activities, toys, sports, world events, businesses, the lakes, and the railroad depot. She speaks simply as though through the eyes of a precocious little girl and by the time she shares some final thoughts with her “family,” you feel included as well. Contains many early photographs.
