Growing Up in Amber Valley

Neil grew up on his parents' farm in Amber Valley. Neil's father, Felix Brown, was also a trapper, carpenter, and hunting guide. It was his mother who looked after the farm. Neil attended a one-room schoolhouse in Amber Valley. As an only child, he had to find ways to entertain himself: he went to movies on weekends and played baseball, tag, and tug-of-war with his cousins.
