Synopsis

My Life As A Kid is a lively autobiography written from the perspective of an imaginative, spirited young boy growing up in the pre-depression and Great Depression years of the 1920s and 30s in Galt, a small town in Southern Ontario, Canada. In the background are the sturdy immigrant Scottish family, with their ethic of hard work and simple, frugal living. The story gains additional depth and broader vision through adult reflections. The style is anecdotal and fresh, providing a wide range of characters with humour, adventure and overtones of the coming world war. Its scenes and memories showcase the remarkable differences and similarities between small town life nearly a century ago and life in the complex modern world of today.
