The author's growing up years as the oldest son in a Mennonite farm family in western Okla., in the years preceding and during the Great Depression includes childhood stories; his teenage years as a mechanic's apprentice; his struggle to come to terms with the vindictive religion of his stern, whip-wielding father; incidents from Duerksen's years as a reporter in Europe after World War II. The book ends with the poignant story of his first wife's death and a "miracle" which brought a new romance. (406pp. hardcover with dust jacket. Wordsworth, 1995.)
