Second Age by Carl A. Franson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"In our busy and complex world, we often forget how to enjoy simple pleasures of life. Second Age takes us to a time when eating oatmeal and raisins, having a warm house, hearing red-wing blackbirds calling, meeting new people and seeing new places are enough to deeply touch the heart, mind and soul. There is a place in each of us that needs to know the importance of appreciating what you have in your life. Second Age is simply written, and you live the author's adventures mostly along the upper Mississippi and other places just as he re-lived them while he was writing about them. You experience a joy and a depth in what life has to offer and in what it has to teach." Second Age has interesting and real descriptions of the Upper Mississippi in the early 1930's, bits about life during the Great Depression, San Francisco and the Bay Area of the early 1930's, reminiscences about working on a luxury passenger liner, visiting ports of call and appreciating other cultures, all viewed through the eyes of a curious young man who cared deeply for everyday people and who understood life's realities.The writing is not pretentious and the writing lends itself to readers who just like to enjoy a good book. The Search Inside feature offers excerpts.
