KIRKUS REVIEW

An Oklahoma boyhood told by a two times pulitzer Prize winner. The wide eyed memories of pence officers, tall tales, of his family's participation in the Run, of long hair and its cutting, of various schools and teachers; of moving from their claim to Enid and the new incentives to learning, of travel, printing, newspaper work and stories behind the news. A wide variety of Oklahoma characters, incidents, changes; a feeling of the self-confidence of boyhood:- this is honest, and winning revelation of a familiar world.
