In this memoir of his childhood in central Tennessee, missionary John Moody (J.M.) McCaleb recalls the joys and sorrows of growing up in the rural United States in the post-Civil War era. McCaleb (1861-1953) was a Churches of Christ preacher who, with his wife Dorothy, engaged in missionary work in Japan (1892-1941), before returning to the US where McCaleb taught on Eastern religions at Pepperdine College. The book (undated, but inscribed in 1919) also includes hand-drawn illustrations.
