ONE OF MY FAVORITE COMING OF AGE NOVELS

Read this one for the first time in 1979 and have read it at least twice since then. The writing is wonderful and the story great. I am not all that sure I would let just any small child read this one, as our society has changed so much over the past few years, I am afraid that many could not relate nor understand the circumstances of the people populating this story. It does touch on some subjects that many might find offensive, i.e. killing game and eating it, butchering livesock on the farm for food, etc. and, gasp, it does touch on sexuality somewhat. Admittedly, somewhat crudely, but it must be remembered when and where the story took place. On the other hand, it might be good for some of our young ones to get a glimps of just how things were. Time was when our meat was not packaged in plastic and the animal was not killed in a factory setting far from our sight. This book actually does a pretty good job of that. All in all, recommend this one highly.
