But it also speaks to more universal themes that resonate deeply, including sibling rivalry, the love of nature and of family, and the challenge of being true to self. Beautifully illustrated with art work by the authors father and brother, as well as other classic illustrations, GRANDMA is a book to read and reread--a book to treasure.

-- Lisa Ede, Ph.D., Professor of English, Oregon State UniversityGrowing up in ’50s Ohio, Paul is a born eccentric. To him, Indians, the woods life and Robin Hood are reality, and he develops ingenious methods to protect himself from the world’s invasion.GRANDMA is an intensely-written memoir, beginning when Paul is six with the title story, and ending with his first year of college. Thoughtful, feisty, and fresh as a March wind, the book has an odd kick to its gallop, yet it’s ingenuous as Forrest Gump.GRANDMA DOES HIS DUTY is a classic of American storytelling, with that timeless feeling of a small town and country living.

While you’re busy with Paul’s utterly sincere gyrations, the atmosphere is quietly working its way into your heart.
