    This delightful memoir of Mildred Kalish's upbringing on a Midwestern farm during the depression will certainly give pleasure to anyone who was brought up on the "Little House on the Prairie" series. Mrs. Kalish does not omit the poverty and difficulties of life at that time, but the glow of her happy childhood nevertheless suffuses this charmingly written book. I sent it as a gift and received an effusive phone call telling me that it was the best book the recipient had read in years! It is not true that happy people have no history. "Little Heathens" successfully confutes this canard.

    This is a very humorous and entertaining book of growing up when times were not as easy as they are today. It is not that far removed from my generation and how we were raised on an Iowa farm--we were taught hard work and thrift. It can be enjoyed by any age, but probably appeals most to readers over 50. I loved it.
