Amazon.com: Meadows and Minefields eBook: Turner, Vern: Kindle Store
Every family has a saga that includes love, pathos, joy, disappointment, tragedy and hope. Meadows and Minefields is one such saga that encompasses the events and challenges that all “baby boomers” experienced in the 1950s and 60s. In light of today's inter-generational discussions, Bert Waller's compelling story about his generation is as rewarding to those who lived it as it is to their descendants, the alphabet generations. It includes the values, events and the social atmosphere of those times that shaped the children and grandchildren of the greatest generation, those who fought tyranny in WW II. Included is the messaging that subsequent generations draw upon, and continue to use, as our nation attempts to move forward into today's uncertain times.
Meadows and Minefields is a compelling, well-crafted, colorful, romantic, true-to-life, page-turner where every chapter has startling new events, life-changing experiences, heart-rending exasperation or unqualified joy.
When a Millennial waxes curious about Baby-Boomers, reading Meadows and Minefields will help him or her understand how America is the way it is today, and better understand the people responsible for making it so.
