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.
