Summary, etc.:
Here is the story of Jon Hassler's early years. His poignant remembrance of family and friends, of youthful calamities and triumphs, show what shaped him and opened his path to become one of Minnesota's best-loved and iconic writers. Memoirs are written from the vantage point of age. Here, his close examination of memory--what endures and why--unfold the pivotal moments of his growing up in the small towns of Staples and Plainview, MN. Family, friends, new neighborhoods and old, questions of faith and doubt--all had deep meaning, he comes to see. In this book, Hassler also confirms William Faulkner's opinion: 'The past is never dead. It's not even past'. -- Provided by publisher.
