Long before there were barbies or batteries, children on the Canadian prairies conjured up imaginative ways to pass the time. Kick the can, fox and geese, hide and seek, building snow forts, horseback riding, and picnics were only a few of the ways children found to amuse themselves.

Faye Reineberg Holt brings to life the magic and inventiveness of play in the childhoods of yester-year in this look at games and pastimes on the prairies up until the 1960s.

Delightful archival photographs will bring a smile of recognition to anyone who has ever been fortunate enough to invent their very own "homemade" fun.
