About the Book

Enjoy these stand-alone short stories about a boy growing up in an Idaho farm town in mid-century. See how that town influenced its younger citizens and prepared them for life outside of its influence. Enjoy the humor, love and attitude that could only have come from small-town America during an era that is no more. It was a time before animals had rights-before anything political was correct-and before thick skins became thin. It was a time of slide rules, hula-hoops, and church keys. It was a time when candy bars were big and the national debt was small. It was a time when first date, first kiss, and first time occurred on three different nights. Close your eyes and pick a story or read them in order. Jog your memory or make a new one. It doesn't matter. These stories will move you!
