Don England was born in 1942, a Memorial Day Baby, under the Big Sky Country in Glendive, Montana. In 1954 he had his first look at the large red rock castle, so named, The Preston School of Industry. The castle on the hill with all its shops and living quarters were surrounded by a 16' high fence, topped with rolls of barbed wire. Even in those young years, he came in close contact with the Preston boys, dressed in their blues. Preston is located in the small foothill town of Ione. He grew up in housing provided by the state to employees of Preston. Charles, his father, Chuck and Rollie, brother and brother-in-law, influenced his young mind by relating war stories as they worked inside the Preston School. He began his own career at the age of 21, at the Preston Institution. He retired as a lieutenant from Central Security in Stockton, California where this work of fiction is based.
