In this warm and inspiring look at early twentieth-century life, author J. George Butler takes us back to the beginnings of the modern American period, and to a quality of life unique to that brief time in our history. Never before or since have innocence and progress worked so closely and comfortably together. The quality of life soared as gaslights changed to electric lights, horse-drawn carts yielded to electric trolleys, ice boxes were replaced by refrigerators, and everything surrendered to the arrival of the "Tin Lizzie."

America was growing up so fast, but not so fast as to forget the values and principles that had created the foundations of the period. Simpler Times takes the reader on a magical trip back into a world when ice cream was made at home, Christmas trees were lit with candles, radios were small rocks with bits of wire and cardboard, parades were a valued form of entertainment, and when children could be children. All of this and much more comes to life when J. George Butler lets us view America through the eyes of a child coming of age.
