After three disastrous floods, the citizens of English, Indiana decided in 1990 to move their town to higher ground. But they will not lose the old Main Street forever. E. C. Roberts has captured that unpaved thoroughfare, the other places and faces of English, and a way of life now vanished in these charming reminiscences of life in a midwestern town in the early days of this century.

From Our Editors

This book is based on the world of E.C. Roberts youth. It is a kinder, gentler America, and also in some ways tougher, more sentimental, more open to experience, more authentic and personal-in short, the world of Mark Twain. In this book, Mr. Roberts gives us more than fifty wonderful 'stories' of the good old days.
