Published by Xlibris
Reno Beach was a magical place in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, a resort town that never really reached its prime, but it attained great stature in the heart, mind and imagination of a young boy who could see adventure, even in the smallest buttonhole or banal blemish. In his mind a vegetable garden became a wilderness plantation. An overturned rowboat became a fortress, a pirate’s treasure cave or a magician’s maudlin mansion. A willow tree only recently uprooted by the wind and waves of an angry possessive lake became the perfect home for, “Tarzan (Jimmie) of the Apes”.
