Through humor intermingled with drama and with nearly total recall, Bert Clayton tells the story of struggling his way through life, joyful, triumphant, sometimes crushed in the process. The son of a strict but loving mother and a father who was extremely talented, outrageously funny, but sometimes remote and troubled, the author describes surviving the Great Depression, enjoying innocent summers, falling in love, and as a young Marine, facing a terrifying incident on Iwo Jima that convinced him he was a dead man. Inspired by a desire to share what was a simpler way of life with grandchildren and those who never lived it, Cocky's Boy will reawaken fond memories in his own generation as well.
