About the Book

Fond, funny, and sometimes frightening memories exude from this 104 page book. The entrepreneurial and innovative approach to life shown by the author's parents, Howard and Hazel Gunter, are told in conversational style. In addition, early chapters tell of the pioneering great grandparents of the 1850's while later chapters include memoirs and sometimes secrets of the author's own childhood and teen days in the 1940's to 1960's. The family names Gunter, Wilson, and Soble all have special significances.
