W. O. Mitchell's stories of Ma, the Kid, her twelve-year-old son, Jake, the hired hand, and the citizens of Crocus, Saskatchewan, began to appear in the pages of Maclean's in 1942. In 1950, the stories began running on CBC Radio and continued until 1956. Three hundred and twenty episodes were produced in all. This audiobook features a selection of those original recordings, drawn from the archives of CBC Radio. Sit back and soak up a simpler, gentler world as the town of Crocus comes to life in these brilliantly performed radio plays featuring John Drainie as Jake and Billy Mae Richards as the Kid. This radio classic is as rich in disputes as it is in characters. Hear all about Crocus's barber Repeat Golightly (-I say, that's Repeat Golightly as in Repeat Golightly-); Jake's friend and nemesis Old Man Gatenby; the -prairie lawyer,- George Solway, who sues the Crocus Breeze editor for claiming he looks like Malleable Brown's goat; and the Kid's Ma - who will not abide Pete Botrell's cheating the Kid in a horse race. Interlaced with these gems are Jake's many tall tales, of great fascination to both the Kid and all who listen in on these episodes.
