“Some Mighty Good Years” by Fred-Oerly

Fred Oerly‘s engaging tales of growing up in Overton, Missouri, a twelve-house railroad and river town, are funny, touching and beautifully written. The collection of 30 stories and photographs from 1925-1937 offers a glimpse of small town life and deserves to have a place on the bookshelves of all who value American folklore.
