Publisher's Summary

Unlike most folks, Hannah Westley never outgrew her childhood sense of wonder. Her first twenty years on the farm were the beginning of a life filled with adventure. Her simple childhood was rich with experiences that offer a glimpse into a time when family values had real meaning. The maps in the one-room Mine Bank School were her Bible and by the eighth grade she had read all of the books in the library. A perpetual run-away, she often dreamed of stowing away on a banana boat and escaping to South America! Her imagination became her passport to far-away lands. As an adult, Hannah did indeed reach many distant shores. Nimble as a hummingbird, she zooms through her early years and inspires us to follow her amazing journey. Children of all ages will enjoy these memories of a very different lifestyle and day not so long ago.

Tales of the Past Shared

I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review . Hannah Cook Westley wrote stories of her childhood and young adult life on a rural farm in Pennsylvania from the 1930s through 1950. She brings the past to life vividly. The narrator, Linda Velwest, does an excellent job. I enjoyed listening and believe listeners of all ages will be charmed and educated by this book.
