This charming book tells the story of Roxane Eldredge, who grew up in Chatham, in her own words. "Spirited and inquisitive as a child, Roxane tries to be good, but gets into scrapes. From pranks to starting a house fire, things go awry. Yet she also exudes responsibility by trapping skunks and picking cranberries to help with the family finances and by volunteering at the Chatham Naval Air Station during World War I." The book offers a portrait of life in early 20th-century Chatham. Illustrated. Includes recipes and discussion and project ideas.
