The town is Wheatland, a few miles outside Vincennes. The time is 1910, spring of the year. "Some of the young boys have finished feeding the chickens and are trying to avoid the April rug-beating chores and slip away to smoke tobacco. Charlie Nicholson is sorting letters, Roy Falls is cutting hair." Just another day in the self-contained and mutually supportive town Judge John L. Niblack re-creates from his own childhood in this eBook Wheatland edition, a re-print of a famous Hoosier classic. Niblack went on as a reporter to win the Pulitzer Prize for his Indianapolis newspaper in 1925 during the Ku Klux Klan days and, in this beautifully written, clever, and often humorous book, shares the stories of his eventful life then and later.
