About this product
- DescriptionThe 1970s was a time of tremendous turmoil and change in our society. It was all about Vietnam, human freedom, liberation, conservation, Zero Population Growth, and saving the earth for future generations. With eight children, I was living in the midst of my own population explosion -- and turning heads whenever I packed them all with me into a restaurant or grocery store. Those were challenging times, interesting and fun times. This book speaks to life's challenges, the search for human freedom and spiritual growth. Putting one foot in front of the other on a daily basis. And for me personally, it was a challenging time -- raising eight children and facing a failing marriage. Come, and share with me the big and little things that make life worth lifing.
