W. O. Mitchells 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 Macleans 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 Crocuss barber Repeat Golightly (I say, thats Repeat Golightly as in Repeat Golightly) Jakes friend and nemesis Old Man Gatenby; the prairie lawyer, George Solway, who sues the Crocus Breeze editor for claiming he looks like Malleable Browns goat; and the Kids Ma who will not abide Pete Botrells cheating the Kid in a horse race. Interlaced with these gems are Jakes many tall tales, of great fascination to both the Kid and all who listen in on these episodes.
