After an early morning rainstorm gives the Carlson family a break from making hay, they plan to go fishing and picnicking at nearby Web Lake. But when they learn that their entire herd of cows has escaped into the neighbor's cornfield, they give up their trip and rush back to their farm duties. After the family works together to round up the cattle and mend the fence, the Carlson kids are rewarded with a genuine farm country picnic.
A charming peek into sweet family dynamics on a 1950s farm! Gordon Fredrickson's performance in this audiobook is rivaled only by the accompanying music. The fiddle jumps in at the story's moments of drama, making this audiobook feel like something out of A Prairie Home Companion.
