About the Book

An in depth look into the lives of people during the 1960s when there weren't any McDonalds or Pizza Huts in every small town USA and sub-cultures were still alive. The times when you could go into a small cafe and get a slice of homemade pie which wasn't refrigerated but was healthy. The times before we had to insure our medical professionals and when you could expect someone to be courteous when they drove near by. It also shows the days of change coming upon the country very quickly. The recognition of the negro people and the resistance to the "good ol' boys" as well as times when Americans were still producing goods in our own factories instead of those abroad. The days when children were happy playing with each other rather than being mesmorized by their gameboy. I have a soft cover edition which I read over ocasionally if I want to re-live and re-explore my youth. I did a fair amount of traveling around the country back then (and recently) and this book is an accurate look back at those days on the precipace of change.
