But I have been nurtured by many other families-of my hometown, of ancestors, of in-laws, of comradeship, of vocation, of avocation, and of faith" "My story" the author writes, "runs like a two-way street filled with the traffic of active and passive verbs-giving and being given, serving and being served, helping and being helped, teaching and being taught, loving and being loved" Readers of this heartfelt and insightful autobiography will discover one man's road to Heaven filled with love-of ideas, friends, work, soul mates, stories, families and God.

About the Author:

D. Gordon Rohman has been writing about his life for nearly as long as he has been living it. When he was in high school, he wrote and published the history of Whitesboro, N.Y. the village in which he and his father grew up. After college, he worked on newspapers in Utica and Syracuse, N.Y. He wrote a book about a man who promoted professional basketball before World War I. After service in the Korean War, he attended Syracuse University where he got his Ph.D. in 1960. For 36 years he served on the faculty of Michigan State University. He played a variety of roles as professor of English, founding dean of a new college, and assistant to former president Clifton R. Wharton, Jr. to develop lifelong education. His special mark at MSU was as an innovator and program designer. He developed a new approach to composition called Pre-Writing which became part of composition instruction nationwide; he led the development of a new college with an innovative approach to liberal education; he created an annual adult study program called Odyssey to Oxford; he taught the art of serious travel to alumni on excursions to many parts of Europe and Hawaii. Although he retired from MSU in 1994, he continues to be a popular lecturer and teacher of literature and history in MSU's adult Evening College where he has been giving courses for over 40 years. He is the author of a collection of essays, Use Words If Necessary, and editor of a collection of his wife's newspaper columns, Family in Towne, both published by AuthorHouse. Readers of this heartfelt and insightful autobiography will discover one man's spiritual journey filled with love-of ideas, friends, work, soul mates, stories, families and God.
