"This book is a simple, yet thought provoking memoir of life lessons in the 1950s in a small rural town in North Central Florida. The lessons hold true today: working hard, loving your neighbor, and giving back to your community. I especially liked the author’s father’s approach to letting his children learn by the consequences of their actions rather than coddling them. In reading this book, I recalled the lessons I learned from my parents, moments that I remember to this day, lessons that that made me the person that I am. I recommend this book for those who strive to understand our current values and those who want to make a change."
