Two Thumbs Up for New KS Book Titled: "Time's Shadow"

Remember what it was like to wake up before dawn, feed the chickens and then walk to your one-room schoolhouse? If you're like most Kansans...probably not. Increasingly, the residents of this state have become city-dwellers, far removed from the rural life of their ancestors. A new book tells what life was really like on a Kansas farm in the 1940s and '50s. Commentator Rex Buchanan praises the book for revealing a slice of history that some will find familiar, but that most Kansans have never known.
