Teachings From Pop
About the book
What we’ve got here, is failure to communicate! One of my favorite phrases from the 1967 movie, Cool Hand Luke, brought home to me the importance of learning life lessons through cross-generational story-telling. Passing down the stories from one generation to the next is a rich tradition getting lost these days in a sea of tweets and texts. One can’t truly know where one is heading, without knowing where one has come from… so, fasten your seat belts, and learn more about: struggles of the early settlers in Iowa kid adventures of the 1950s fighting in the Civil War neighborhood battles with BB guns chasing after horse thieves slinging snowballs at trucks
Teachings from Pop is a collection of stories, glimpses of time, from the original settlers in Iowa, to childhood in the fifties. The historical characters and circumstances portrayed in this book are based on real people and events.
Combining the stories of several generations in the same location, the reader is transported from log cabins and Civil War days to hare-brained adventures in the 1950s. “Boomers” will remember these experiences as some of the best times ever, even though many were simply the stupid things kids dream up.
Hopefully, this book will help people of today understand how life was back in the old days for the pioneers, through the mind-boggling changes that occurred during the next hundred-plus years.read more
