Review:
Fourth in their commendable and highly informative picture books about small-town America (preceded by Prairie Town, River Town and Mountain Town), Bonnie Geisert's concise text and Arthur Geisert's meticulously detailed pictures enable us to live vicariously through a year of temperature extremes, sandstorms, heavy snows, late winter rains and baking sun in summer. Looking closely at each picture, we learn a great deal about life in this harsh environment and about the ingenuity and adaptability of the people who live there. A unique bit of Americana.
