- First Published - 1970
- Written between 1929 and 1965, the autobiographical pieces in Sandhill Sundays and Other Recollections are a colorful introduction to Sandoz Country. The unforgettable people this book introduces you to includes They include the Sandoz patriarch Old Jules; Marlizzie, the archetypal pioneer woman who was Mari's mother; siblings, chums, neighbors, homesteaders, and Indians, all individualized and defined by a harsh and lonely frontier. Dangers in every form—blizzards, fires, rattlesnakes, murderous men—are described, and, just as vividly, so are the pleasures afforded by country cooking, storytelling, pet animals, and the first phonograph for miles around.
