Noah Thorne
A Wisconsin Farm Boy in the 1920s

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.
