"This book provides descriptive accounts of what the one-room school era was like for teachers, students, and the wider community, encompassing school infrastructure, school events both typical and unusual, teacher-student relationships, and other factors relative to the culture of an educational system that began in pioneer times and ended during the 1950s to the 1970s, primarily in the 1960s"--P. [1].
