From the author's Introduction: "I am simply telling the story of my life from the age of four to the proverbial three score and ten, a time which encompassed two world wars and two other wars not as large but no less devastating in their consequences--plus the Great Depression. I have tried from memory to express my feeling about events and human experiences that I have had in the tenuous process of living and I would hope gaining some maturity. My career has been primarily in the field of education but fortunately interspersed with some forty different occupations of a sort, which has been helpful in giving me a feel for a wide variety of the social mix. Consequently much of my life has been shared with young people to whom I owe much. 212 pp. done on heavy paper stock. The "wooden knob" was a symbol of permanence in life; it was the newel post of a college bannister.
