MORROW, Kenneth A.




Kenneth A. Morrow's A Boyhood in Nelson is a memoir about a family of four children growing up during the Depression. "We grew up fatherless, living off the land," says Morrow. "On the streets we learned to deal with prostitutes and prospectors, cruel businessmen, perverted parishioners and immoral neighorhood men. On the other hand we were grateful to kind neighbors. We learned the lessons that kids brought up in poverty can learn--how to get what we needed and wanted during childhood and how to find personal and financial success in adulthood."
