Review by: Peter Hitt on Sep. 27, 2013 :
I was drawn to this book by the similarity between the author's experiences and my own life. My memoir, PALACE IN THE FIELDS chronicles my farm experiences and THE HUN'S PLUMBERS detailing my military school experiences, are both available as e-books on Smashwords.com or in print at CreateSpace.com. My emphasis was more on the freedom, fun, hard work, and adventure of farm life and bucking the totalitarian control of military school. Gary did a masterful job of outlining the Holstein farm community experience in the 1940's and 1950's, the same time period for my epics.
