An Unusual Childhood: Growing Up Around Jardine, Montana - 1916 - ca. 1930 | [Harlene Jessie Reeves]

An Unusual Childhood: Growing Up Around Jardine, Montana - 1916 - ca. 1930

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.

    "Such a fun book to listen to!"
    Would you listen to An Unusual Childhood again? Why?

    It was written in such a way that connected you to that time period. It was simple, but provided such a good reference.


    What about Wendy Kay White’s performance did you like?

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