Readers are invited to join the author as he recounts a thrilling childhood, complete with page turning adventures that are reminiscent of Tom Sawyer and Huckelberry Finn. Parts are lively and charming, recounting hilarious pranks and mischievous high jinks of a young boy growing up during the Great Depression. Being a good boy with a generous heart did not stop the author from engaging in some rebellious activities or disorderly conduct and usually produced unique punishments that often prove to be as funny as the adventures themselves. All is not joyful, as some terible tragedies occur but readers will be uplifted at the resilience and hope mixed between the heartbreak while being reminded that life is truly what you make of it. Filled with instantly engaging characters of every sort, view the world through the eyes of an eternally optimistic boy enjoying a wondrous childhood packed with excitement around every turn. Set in the mountainous region of southern West Virginia, experience life in a rough and tumble coal-mining town filled with a cast of relatives, neighbors, friends and enemies straight out of central casting. Be prepared to fall in love with an instantly endearing character and see the world through the eyes of Buzz, the Boy From Bud.

About the Author:

Harry E. Lester was born in Bud, West Virginia in the summer of 1929, before the stock market crash causing the Great Depression. Also known as Buzz, he grew up in a loving home with his parents, two brothers, sister, and colorful extended family that helped shape the man he would become. As a young family man, he moved to Detroit, "the land of opportunity." Finding work at Ford Motor Co. and later McLouth Steel, he was an active union man who eventually rose through the ranks of the United Steelworkers of America to become the District 2 Director, helping steer the international union through health and safety reform, increased standard of living, and protected pension plans. He is a powerful, resourceful leader who fought for steelworkers and working people everywhere as rampant imports caused tremendous job losses and threatened the American middle-class. Now retired, Harry and his wife Mary continue to be outspoken supporters of the labor movement and social justice.
