The New York childhood of the young man who becomes her husband is the stuff of Laura Ingalls Wilder's FARMER BOY. With her signature insight into the daily life of a nineteenth-century farm, Wilder champions the earnest hard work and family joy of Almanzo Wilder. Details abound --the techniques for training a team of young oxen, the agony of a Saturday night bath, the myriad of delicious foods at the county fair, the unrest the "big boys" cause at school, the wisdom and guidance of parents. Wilder is a keen observer, and Cherry Jones has an eager voice. Her narration is quick paced and enthusiastic as she recounts each story with an immediacy that brings the listener into each season's happenings. Fiddle music complements the recording. A.R.
