The Cheechakoes

by Short, Wayne

The remarkable story of a remarkable family is narrated by Wayne Short, who shared with his father and mother and two younger brothers -- Dutch, fourteen, and Duke, sixteen -- the unique experience of a pioneer existence in the twentieth century. They were all cheechakoes -- Indian for "greenhorns" -- but the challenge of the wilderness only served to make their life more exciting, expecially for the boys.
