 "Campfire in the Basement- Reflections from a North Woods Lake"
Pedersen shares stories about antics from his childhood growing up in Alborn, MN, living with his family during challenging economic times, and refers to himself as a "Little Dickens." 
the first chapter of the book explains why the book is titled Campfire in the Basement. Young Darrell wanted to impress his cousins when they were playing "camp out" in the basement on Christmas Day, so he started to gather items needed to show off his campfire-making skills. Thankfully, it was extinguished in time, but made for a Christmas Day Darrell will always remember.
