About this product
- DescriptionOn a dreary day in the late nineteenth century, seventeen year old Moses Morganstern left home in Poland for America. Within hours of disembarking at the land of the free, he witnessed shocking acts of greed and swindling, exploiting the defenseless. Hoping the episodes were transient blemishes in the American character, he surveyed a broader cross section of the people to justify his vision of the land's goodness. Sadly he found cheating and persecution even among groups of the same nationality and occupation. Searching for a job with a mercantile business company he was prounced unemployable by the German/Jewish owners because he spoke with a Yiddish dialect. Undeterred, he quickly identified an unserved market and began selling sewing tions door-to-door. Success followed success, but ne hushed the inner voice demanding he find his true purpose. The persistence of his call to start on his journey never accompanied by any hint of departure r direction, r distance r destination stalked him like his shadow and he realized there would never be anything definitive except he must go.
- Author BiographyBorn in 1921, Lamb has lived during the time of the most social extremes in the twentieth century. Intermittent wars, depressions and prosperity have temporarily retarded or stimulated advances in scientific, economic and equal rights and along the way provided Lamb with perspectives and participation in endeavors ranging over the years from errand boy to corporate counselor. Since retirement, Lamb has counseled college graduates seeking employment, volunteered in prisoner rehabilitation and worked with street people. After several years of painting he concentrated on writing and completed his autobiography and three novels - the last, Strange Bedfellows, Foul Play - Fair Play - Foreplay, was published in 2010.
