About the Book

Remember when you built your first tree fort? Or broke your neighbor’s window playing ball? Or raided your best friend’s refrigerator? Relive the time of growing up as a late baby boomer in suburbia. Each story is accompanied by a “lesson learned”—what the author walked away with after getting into trouble or encountering new people who expanded his world view. See how these lessons shaped his morals and mindset amid the fast-changing times of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Experience the actions and compassion of a dad who was ahead of his time in many respects and was involved with his sons’ activities—sports, music, and tinkering with cars and machines. Regularly attending their games, he snapped photos, jotted notes, stored the press clippings, and had his own “man cave,” complete with sports, Civil War, and personal memorabilia. His child-rearing strategy was unique. The writing is heartfelt and opinionated.
