This is the memoirs of Dave’s dad, Charles O. Perry.
Where would you end up if your life exceeded eight decades? Imagine that you began in a tarpaper shack in the depression dustbowl and spent your life traveling the world, building megaprojects on two continents. Follow the life of this homeless okie, traveling with his parents in the 1930s to a new, golden life in California, the promised land. Follow his adventure through the Navy. Then watch him be the first in his family to graduate university. Pick up this saga and you won’t put it down until the last page.
