TO THE LIVING MEN AND WOMEN OF MY OWN MIDDLE WESTERN HOME TOWN THIS BOOK IS DEDICATED



--



The story suggests that the small town indignities of a family can create a disharmony among them that once would have been used to solidify the bounds that unite them. The author is strongly coherent in the fact that a man needs to find success that will satisfy his ego regardless of the effect that it can have on his child. Windy goes about his business but the inferiority that accompanies his life gives his son the illusion that life offers little hope. The plot that encompasses Windy's journey through life has become entrenched in young Sam's mind as something that increases in severity as the story continues.--Submitted by Carol Kendall
