Caldecott Award Winner
"[T]here were Indians in Minnesota--tame ones." "One time he came to the town where my father's mother lived and fought Satan there." "When my father was very young he had two dogs and a colored boy." Wow. 1940 was a very different time. Oh, I see why it won an award. *Two* dogs died. Basically the story of the author's parents and grandparents. The interesting part is what he chooses to include.
