Books Info:

Wiwak: When I Was a Kid free pdf Memoir from the perspective of a boy's place as child-number-two in a family of seven. Uncovering layers from the world surrounding him he knew as safe, this revealing collection explores growing up in a generation coming out of the 20th Century's Great Depression and entering the 2nd World War through the memories of the author's re-collecting of times, good and hard, with genuine originality and exuberance. At times satirical with a dramatic flair revealing hidden aspects of an ordinary life that weaves well in an intimate yet open appraisal of his child-life in a plainspoken easy to read style that is poignant yet crisp, having an intensity of feeling that takes one back to an earlier life of familiar kitchen aromas, the yard, the dog, the rusty gate, in the dirt with toy farm animals and marbles, all artifacts personal and symbolic. Everyday autobiographical content, revealed as truth- Campbell paints for himself -and for us a picture of "back then"
