Sammy An Incidental Life of Fortunate Circumstances
As children, we never tired of being entertained by Dad's hilarious stories of growing up in WWII Kansas. Now in written form, you too, can take part in this amusing and thought-provoking American boy's life. Born in the heart of the Depression, Sammy comes of-age in post WWII America. In the 1940s he is free to explore and test his limits as we follow the youngster from his earliest impressions to dating fiascos and his first car at fourteen. It's after the war when the GIs swamp the school system to get the education they missed that Sammy really starts learning about life. Intrigued with survival, the teenager and his best friend drive into the Canadian wilderness to live off the land and by their wits. It will become the adventure of his lifetime. This is a book for our times with surprising parallels to todays economic climate; a tale that is both uniquely his and universally every American boy's.
