George Butler is, a wonderful story-teller.
Charles Kuralt from
...a gentle and skilful blend of the social, cultural,
political, and practical history of a dynamic
nation in a period of great change.
In this warm and inspiring look at early twentieth
century life, author J. George Butler takes us back to the
beginnings of the modern American period, to a quality of life
unique to that brief time in our history. Never before or since
have innocence and progress worked so closely and comfortably
together. The quality of life soared as gaslights changed to
electric lights, horse drawn carts yielded to electric trolleys
ice boxes were replaced by refrigerators, and everything
surrendered to the arrival of the "Tin Lizzie." Simpler
Times takes the reader on a magical trip back into a world
when ice cream was made at home, Christmas trees were lit with
candles, radios were small rocks with bits of wire and cardboard,
and when children could be children.
