Moraga, California (EastBayDaily) — When We Were Young by author George Kilbourne reveals that life in the eastern part of Kentucky during the Great Depression is a far cry from living in the Metropolitan San Francisco area. Most everything was different. This book attempts to preserve what everything was like during that period and serve it as a legacy to the subsequent generations.
In this book, Kilbourne presents a wonderful recollection of the life, events, and experiences to dumbfound the young and bemuse the old. Life was just different, and it wasn’t that long ago for the author who is in his eighties. The stories and descriptions in this book are meant to record, to amuse and perhaps befuddle younger generations, with their impossibilities, memories and verbal pictures. Meant mainly for the author’s nephews and nieces, this book is also relevant for those who never had the “benefit” of living in that time.
When We Were Young is a detailed and very inspiring book that will jog readers’ memories and cause them to record something of their own lives for succeeding generations. It is available in trade paperback, trade hardback, and Ebook formats.
