Product Description

A mother and son wander aimlessly in the late 1920s through Arizona and Mexico border-town poverty; homeless, with no life direction. In the early 1930s the son, through life’s happenstance, discovers a better way that people can live and exist in a loving family. Ultimately, in 1937, the state of Arizona reunites him with extended family living in Tucson. This time period and these locations provide the beginning settings for a memoir that takes the reader through this child’s transition from young boyhood surviving on the streets, into early manhood; enlisting into the U.S. Army in the Fall of 1940 and with the outbreak of the second world war, being stationed in Seattle, Washington, helping his antiaircraft contingent defend Boeing’s B-17 bomber production; then assuming new roles of a husband and father before going overseas for the invasion of Japan. After war’s end he becomes a new civilian living with his wife and growing family in the city of Seattle, happily working several years for Seattle City Light. During the late 1950s when a family friend continues to encourage him to make a change to the profession of selling residential real estate, he succumbs and somewhat unknowingly chooses the opportunity. Unfortunately, opportunities can be a wolf in sheep’s clothing, as his life changing choices take him and his family down unfamiliar roads and social influences that alter the future course of all of the family’s lives.

From the back cover

My early childhood years that I think I remember best are from 1927 to 1933. Since there was never a home base from which to start and end, so many memories just come to mind that don’t seem to fit in any particular place. These are things that I experienced during the tough years of my young life as my mother and I traveled from small town to small town for whatever reason drove her. My mother and I never had roots; she was so unsettled and alcoholism was her biggest problem. She was in her early twenties and loved a good time; being a mother was a sometime thing.

These early years were the most sorrowful and impressive on my childhood because I was a street kid, probably on the loose, and most likely not seeing my mother for days at a time. I have no idea what happened to school years in my life for this span of time; mostly I didn’t attend. When I really think of where I grew up, I would have to say everyplace, primarily the state of Sonora, Mexico, where our adventures took place in the towns and on the streets of Agua Prieta, Cananea, Hermosillo, Naco and Nogales. Towns and streets in Arizona included Tucson, Nogales, Douglas and Bisbee.
