I've just completed Little Heathens: Hard Times and High Spirits on an Iowa Farm During the Great Depression by Mildred Armstrong Kalish. It's an amazing little book with beautiful language and strong images -- making head cheese, among others! I was surprised that the NY Times named it one of the five best non-fiction books of 2007 -- surprised, but pleased.
