KIRKUS REVIEW

Two times Pulitzer Prize winner tells of the familiar world of his childhood on their claim, in Enid. Here are wide-eyed memories of peace officers, tall tales, of family participation in the Run, of long hair and its cutting, school, etc; the widening horizons that Enid offered -- travel, printing, new incentives to learning. The responsibilities attendant on his Father's death, newspaper work and the stories behind the news, the backing and filling before the decision to leave home. Here is the perpetual variety of small town Oklahoma characters, incidents, changes; the self-confidence of an American boyhood; in honest, winning revelation.
