Being a Boy

Being a boy (1877) by Charles Dudley Warner is a truly delightful look at a year in the life of a New England farm boy. Trials, tribulations, wonders. His first boy-girl party, the shame of his first lie. Keen observations on old men and pumpkin pie. All these and much more are in this classic old book.

There were 19 posts in the original series. I suggest you take each slowly so to be filled with the same sort of anticipation as the boy has delighting in the Season of Pumpkin Pie. Enjoy!
