"Along the banks of Shawnee Creek, the young Wendell Cultice enjoyed a Tom Sawyer boyhood, as he refers to his childhood and youth in a small Ohio community from 1922 to 1941. Curious, mischievous, and ornery, he was shaped by the people, culture, and events that surrounded him. Mentored by his oldest brother, he always tried to keep up with the older boys. They were creative and ingenious in using what they could scavenge to create their own fun. Their innovative games—Cat on the Carpet, Barnyard Rodeo, Cowboys and Indians (using .22 rifles with live ammunition), mooning passenger trains from their swimming hole, and tricking baseball playmates into sliding into fresh cow dung—makes us wonder how Cultice and his siblings ever managed to reach adulthood" --
