"In our busy and complex world, we often forget how to enjoy simple
pleasures of life. "Second Age" takes us to a time when eating
oatmeal and raisins, having a warm house, hearing red-wing
blackbirds calling, meeting new people and seeing new places are
enough to deeply touch the heart, mind and soul. There is a place
in each of us that needs to know the importance of appreciating
what you have in your life.
"Second Age" is simply written, and you live the author's
adventures mostly along the upper Mississippi and other places just
as he re-lived them while he was writing about them. You experience
a joy and a depth in what life has to offer and in what it has to
"Second Age" has interesting and real descriptions of the Upper
Mississippi in the early 1930's, bits about life during the Great
Depression, San Francisco and the Bay Area of the early 1930's,
reminiscences about working on a luxury passenger liner, visiting
ports of call and appreciating other cultures, all viewed through
the eyes of a curious young man who cared deeply for everyday
people and who understood life's realities. The writing is not
pretentious and the writing lends itself to readers who just like
to enjoy a good book.
The "Search Inside" feature offers excerpts.
