Book Synopsis
Charles Henry Peterson (1929-2016), was an ordinary man with an extraordinary history. His first twenty years were spent in search of access to religion, education, and a place to call home. This is the story of a man’s childhood and adolescence, in his own words. It illuminates a ruggedly American way of life that no longer exists. A stickler for interesting details, Charles dictated the narrative after long days of manual labor on his farm. It took thirty-three years.

Charles's account is simple, unusual, and full of conviction, just like him. “I can tell you that it is as honorable to sweat as it is to pray,” he concludes. As his reader, you will believe it.

Fully annotated, with footnotes, photos, supporting documentation and an introduction from the family.

This is more than just a family biography and memoir: it is a darn good story that is well-told, in an authentic and amusing first-person narrative.

The perspective is at times everyman, yet there is a deep wisdom delivered in the most unexpected way. Stripped down to the essence, the small observations loom large. As a reader, I couldn't help but marvel at how far afield we've gone from homespun values and morals of Peterson's time. It's like looking at another world, yet one that seems familiar to the soul. This is an unexpectedly interesting read that reminds us that each one of us is extraordinary in our own way ... something Charles knew all along and in not needing to prove that, simply does.
