My father spent his last days keeping a record of his life. He wrote about his beginnings and his struggles through each phase of his life.
He was born in 1908. Gas engines and automobiles were still a novelty. People walked or rode horses or mules. Most people never traveled more than a few miles from where they born.
His time saw the beginning of flight, radio waves, and telephones.
He witnessed the terrible World Wars, atomic bombs, the Cold War, the Moon landing.
These things and his personal struggles to survive his time, led him to bring pen to paper.
He left his writings to me. This was my inheritance. He gave his words to me. He told me to make them mine.
For the past six years. I have been editing his writings. I have shared them by posting them through WordPress.
I published them recently through Amazon Books. Now his first volume is available in book form as well as Kindle Book. You may click the link at the top of the page.
I am currently working on the next volume of writings, which will be available soon.
