Bread Pudding and Other Memories: A Boyhood on the Farm by Edward Rielly takes the author back to his childhood on a small dairy farm in southwestern Wisconsin. Growing up in the 1940's and 1950's, he describes a way of life that has largely disappeared from the American scene. His memories are rich and varied of the farm, barns, farmhouse, one-room school, Christmas pageants, favorite television shows, church missions, first love, special places and more. The author recounts stories of his family, short on money but long on love and hard work. This book is a treasure trove of memories about rural life in Wisconsin.
