The Peach Tree Limb
The author relives adventures he experienced in 1940's and 1950's California as the son of a conman who served six prison terms and was married five times. Ranging from humor to serious, we go from Midnight the nannygoat baby-sitter to nearly driving the pickup off a cliff and getting the truck off the train tracks seconds before a freight train roared by, and a most unusual birthday present.
