Noah Thorne
A Wisconsin Farm Boy in the 1920s

by Mark Gengler

The 1920’s were a time of new inventions arriving almost daily. Electricity was coming from the city to the farm. The telephone was a wonder to behold! Tractors were doing the work of horses in the field and autos were replacing wagons and buggies. Bootleggers hauled their loads on the back roads and bank robbers tried for easy money in small towns. For an 8 year old boy it was a time of excitement and wonder. Follow the adventures of Noah Thorne as the modern age comes to the farm.
