By C. R. Wilker

 

A marvellous family friendly book that will lift your spirits. Once Upon a Sandbox, by C. R. Wilker, is a warm and gentle memoir about family life on a farm. It is about the farm and the individuals, the personalities, and the ties that bind them to each other. Whether it’s helping to whitewash a barn, hoeing endless rows of vegetable plants, or driving a tractor to prepare for spring seeding, there’s plenty of work to be done. Through this collection of prose and poetry, reflect on the realities of farm families, their connection with community, weather and economy, as well as being stewards of the land from which they make a living. This is a fine story to which anyone will relate.

Whether it’s helping to whitewash a barn when you’re afraid of heights, hoeing endless rows of vegetable plants, or driving a tractor to prepare for spring seeding, there’s plenty of work to be done. Visits with family and friends, trips to the woodlot, baseball games, skating, or a once-yearly trip to the beach provide times of relaxation and fun. Once upon a sandbox is a narrative in poetry and prose about life on a family farm in the 50s and 60s.
