Reeves gives us her authentic account of growing up around the Montana town of Jardine which, today, is a virtual ghost town. Her stories are sometimes funny, as when she tells about a runt pig miraculously waxing fat after eating the crankcase oil from of a Model T Ford. Sometimes they're shocking, like "the worst day" in her life when her brother blew off his hand hammering a dynamite cap. Another brother almost died from eating carbide powder cookies he made.
This kid had an unusual childhood, growing up by a dying silver mining town bordering Yellowstone Park. You must hear this little girl's vividly told stories if you are interested in the vanishing western era she describes.

She read this book as if she was actually the author.
