From the Publisher:

Written with light humor and nostalgia, this gem of a book recreates the joys and the struggles of the post-war years of a small American town adjusting to larger world events.

From the Back Cover:

From air raid drills in 1942 to the arrival of the Interstate Highway in the mid-1950s, a boy, Freddie Lemley, describes the American experience through the prism of his small West Virginia town. As he struggles to come of age in the post-war years, his town struggles to adapt to changes in America that hover over the town like a UFO.

Post-war economic growth and the intrusion of the highways, racial injustice, religious revival, accidental death and suicide, the historic struggle of coal miners for safe conditions and decent wages, all leave their mark on both Freddy and the town. He pursues the girl of his dreams as the town changes. It is not till the presidential primary of 1960, as John F. Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey visit the town that Freddie, over a cup of coffee with Senator Humphrey, is able to recognize the loss of the way of life he knew and loved.
