I found this book while digging up history on my grandmother, I was so elated to come across it, as the Author was my grandmothers best friend, and there are alot of stories inside that contain information about my grandmother. Besides that this book, was a quick, easy read, that is light hearted, fun, and adventurous. A tale about two young girls leaving NY to join the circus. Their is lots of cute funny stories about famous people who were with the Cole Bros circus in the 40's. I highly recommend this book.
