Quick Overview

For eight-year-old Helen, it was hard to decide what she liked most about camp meeting. Was it watching the big tent going up? Helping Mom in the kitchen? Eating Eskimo Pies and grape popsicles? Or was it the music and stories from Eric B. Hare, Josephine Cunnington Edwards, and Del Delker?

The visit by Elder Salau from the Solomon Islands was memorable. He stopped by the Primary tent on Wednesday morning while wearing a skirt made of palm leaves and strings of shells around his neck. He carried a huge shield and a long spear and told stories about how fierce his people had been before missionaries brought them the gospel. Now his people were known around the world for their kindness and gentleness. The boys in Primary were impressed by their visitor’s huge muscles. The girls were amazed at his hair, which was very big and very black with yellow fluff near the ends.

In Old-Fashioned Camp Meeting, each day is filled with excitement, hard work, and fun as Helen, Lyle, and Ted romp through a Minnesota camp meeting long, long ago.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Helen Godfrey Pyke


Helen Godfrey Pyke has been teaching writing at Southern Adventist University (SAU) since 1987, where she sponsors SAU's Writers Club. Prior to that Helen taught elementary and secondary school. Her writing career began while she was still in college. Her first book, A Sword Unsheathed, was published in 1969. Helen has written and co-written several books over the years, including No Peace for a Soldier and Any Sacrifice But Conscience.

Helen is a native of northern Minnesota and a graduate of Walla Walla College. She is married to Teddie Pyke. Together they have three grown children and seven grandchildren. Their sons Greg and Doug are loggers in Alabama. Both Helen and her husband come from families historically involved in logging, which is the impetus for her most recent book Pinch River.

Gardening, historical research, and walking are Helen's passions. She loves to cook fresh produce from her garden as well as pizza and chocolate chip cookies which are as varied as the stories she writes.
