Signed by the Author. Octavo, blue leatherette (hardcover), gilt letters and decoration to upper cover,175 pp. Near-Fine, in a Good+, mylar protected dust jacket with edgwear that incudes a small tear to upper cover. From dust jacket: Remembering with Granny is a collection of charming and nostalgic tales of a young girl growing up in a poor family during the Great Depression. Granny will capture your imagination with accounts of fun, love and happiness despite poverty. You will read of a time often referred to as “The Good Old Days,” when life was simple but full of hardships, when neighbors helped neighbors and all members of a family pulled together for the common good. You will understand the love and wisdom of Mom and Dad Derryberry, who taught their twelve children that poverty is not an excuse to abandon the true values of life. These stories will bring laughter and tears, evoke memories of childhoods past, and awaken the often forgotten spirit of family in us all. Read ad reminisce wiht Granny about doing homework by the light of a kerosene lamp, unable to afford electricity; the excitement of her most precious gift -- her only childhood doll; the joy of sharing the little food a family had with weary travelers; riding in an open surrey on cold winter days; standing in line at the outhouse; making toys from odds and ends or things to be thrown away. Live with Granny through her early childhood to dating years, from life at home during World War II to fun times with her children and grandchildren. Understand how happiness and success can be built upon a firm foundation when one never allows adversity and hardship to be an excuse for failure.
