The author, age eighty-four, has entertained his children and grandchildren from generation to generation with stories of his early childhood growing up in Chicago during the Great Depression, and his entry into manhood. His stories are entertaining as well as enlightening because they provide insight into some of life’s important lessons by giving the reader a glimpse of how life was then − without TV, the internet, iPads and all the trappings we so take for granted.

In this, his first published work, he takes the reader to a time today’s generation has never known.
