Little Millie Kalish grew up on her grandparents’ Iowa farm during the Great Depression. With her father gone, she and her family could have been overwhelmed by the struggle to survive. But this is not a tale of suffering. She and her siblings and their cousins from the farm across the way played as hard as they worked, running barefoot through the fields, as free and wild as they dared. As she says in her opening, “I tell of a time, a place, and a way of life long gone, and the sheer joy and excitement of it all. It was quite a romp.”
