Great for young readers!

Through tough times and good ones, life and love fill the Dunker home. Patsie's memories (and recipes) bring readers into the warm circle of her family's life in the 1930s and 1940s and underscore the values of hearth and home.

Pat Likes, alias "Pike County Patsie", the youngest of the 13 Dunker children, relives her growing-up years in a farm home just across the shining Mississippi from Mark Twain's Hannibal, MO.

You'll laugh and cry over the adventures and escapades of Pat's close-knit, fun-loving family. The book includes stories of Mom Dunker's "gentleman cow", Dad's Christmas gelatin, a mysterious corpse, a marauding tomcat called Slick Blue, sparrows in a brother's wedding bed, and much, much more.

From wild horseback rides to Model A Fords, homemade bread to "mouse pies", here are memories of the pleasures and hardships of country living you'll never forget.
