DJ is slightly rubbed, front flap creased. Extremities show light wear. ; Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector. ; 280 pages; A companion volume to Jake and the Kid. This is a 1989 collection named after the famous 1950s CBC radio series and the earlier book, Jake and The Kid, from 1962. This is a great collection of 16 short stories, almost 300 pages long. They are narrated by Jake and alternately by "the kid." They are stories about their life on a Saskatchewan farm near Crocus, Saskatchewan, which we can assume is realistic but fictional. The kid's ma is alive, but the father is dead and Jake is a surrogate father of sorts, and of course he is the "hired hand" on the farm. He does most of the work and manages the planting and harvesting, etc. The stories are set in a time spanning the WWII era up to the early 1950s.
