A peaceful lake and a hand built canoe, just a few of the things which were a part of the many childhood adventures Howard Redpath writes about in his book, “Don’t Call My Mother!”
His adventures were anything but peaceful though, especially for his Mother! As a single parent raising a young boy in the 1920’s and 30’s, she had her hands full. She also got quite an ear full from the many phone calls she received from Mothers throughout the neighborhood telling her of her son’s most recent escapades. From building sleds to sail boats, Howard shares his memories of a time before television and computers when imagination, wonderment and a little risk taking were key elements in every boys life.
So sit back and enjoy the early years of a very inquisitive mind.
