Native Nebraskan Joe Brown has lived a good life. In his collection of true stories, Brown takes a poignant look back into his past and all the ways his family and friends have influenced his path in life.
Brown—who grew up on a dairy farm until his teenage years, when he moved to Farnam, Nebraska—offers an introspective, often amusing glimpse back into the simple times of his childhood when vacations meant traveling a few hundred miles to visit family, when holding two fingers of his father’s hand meant security, and when neighbors and friends came to help whenever they were needed. From the carefree, barefoot days on the farm to the tumultuous changes as he matured into manhood, Brown reminisces about both the good and the bad as he learned to appreciate hard work, those who loved him unconditionally, and his relationship with God.
Man, What a Time—Man, What a Life shares one man’s inspirational perspective on his life from childhood to present day as he reflects on his unique moments in time.
