A Memoir of Holstein: An Engineer Traces His Origin
by Gary G. Ruhser
In A Memoir of Holstein, a retired engineer traces his first 18 years growing up on a farm near a small Iowa town founded by Germans. He shares how community, school, friends, relatives, and time spent alone molded his life. Inviting and nostalgic, the wonders of his formative years are examined through the eyes of the boy who lived them with the hindsight of the man who was shaped by them.
