The book One of Many is a real-life portrayal of how the author lived as a child. The book explains what it was like to be the last of nineteen children growing up in rural Maine in the 1960s. The book was written through the eyes of a five- to seven-year-old child but with the commentary of an adult perspective. The reader is asked to realize that the worst things the author experiences were not written in this book. They were intentionally left out. There will be a second book following One of Many and a third and probably a fourth.
