For anyone fond of Americana and old-fashioned storytelling
The old-time country store was more than just an emporium. With its pot-bellied stove and barrel of common crackers within reach of whoever had the time for chatting, this time-honored institution was also a general meeting house, a public forum, and an entertainment center. With words both wise and droll and his inimitable line drawings, Eric Sloane recreates the flavor of the country store in all its delightful moods and poses.
