Prairie Rattlers, Long Johns and Chokecherry Wine
Category: History: U.S.: South Dakota
Author: Emma L. Willey
Copyright/published Year: 2003 by Publish America
Rattlers, Long Johns and Chokecherry Wine is the true story of a family like those in The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie. The eleventh of twelve children, Emma Willey was born in 1920 in the sod house her Papa built on a South Dakota homestead. She and her three sisters cuddled in one bed for warmth, milked cows, shucked corn, butchered beef, helped Mama cook for threshing crews, and hauled water to wash clothes. When the work was done, they had fun without store-bought toys or television. The family survived rattlesnakes, drought, the Depression, blizzards, and illness... except Rose, who died at seventeen. Return with Emma to the prairie, wind in her hair as she gallops on her horse Randy, sunsets unblocked by buildings or freeways, line-ups for Saturday night baths, and life-shaping education in a one-room country school.
