A visit back in time when the world was a very different place. It's a fascinating read straight from the southside of Chicago. Curt Erler shares his story of hard working family life,friendship,love,faith,baseball,romance,the world at war,cars and the era that gave us Rock'n'Roll. A beautiful and touching read and one that I like to re-visit.
