About the Author:

Richard Everett Londgren was born at the start of the Great Depression. His family lived near the railroad tracks and saw many hoboes riding the Great Northern rails. Though times were tough for his family and many others, he enjoyed life in his small community and caring family. He helped milk the family's cows, rescue eggs from hens and do his duty in the family garden. Along the way, sports and other school and town activities enriched the humble Great Depression life. Now, those experiences have helped him record that kind of life in his novels.
