A young boy in Southern California meets life head-on during the fifties and sixties. Robert Lawson was the second child out of six siblings. A beautiful mother and inventive dad lead their children on a wild journey. You'll meet animals, contraptions, wild imaginations and more until life comes to a stand still, and all hope seems to vanish.
A wonderful tale of hopes crashed, and plans destroyed. Somewhat like sticking six children in the middle of a tornado, never knowing where it will drop them — together or alone. You'll meet great foster parents and horrible grandparents. You'll laugh, cry, and gather your own hopes for this little boy. Loved a little, ignored a lot, but ultimately you'll rejoice over Robert's success. You may identify with him, or promise yourself that your kids won't go through this kind of life. You can make a difference either in your own life, or in the lives of those around you. Don't miss this remarkable story of despair and triumph.
