About the Book

This is the true story of a boy who was born sixth to a family of very poor people. The family lived hand to mouth, and day by day. The father was employed by the Minneapolis news paper but besides his own family, he also was supporting his elderly parents and several siblings. Dennis, the youngest, had to fight for everything he ever had. This is the story of how he over came the difficulties to survive and eventually to prosper. He had to accomplish this while over coming shyness and stubbornness. Even at a very young age he preferred being in the woods and lakes, and has never mixed well with large gatherings of people.

About the Author

This is a book of poetry that spans the years. Some of these poems were written forty years ago, and some were written now for this book. They are meant to be fun to read but some of them have been written with tongue in cheek. They all have some segments that was from a real time or place but I may be the only one that can find the connection. A good example of this will be found in the works that I have titled THE FACES OF THE LADY. This is about a large wilderness lake that is along the Minnesota- Ontario border. I have fished and camped on this lake many times and any canoeist that paddles the lake will soon find that this Lady has many moods that can change in an instant. I had a lot of fun writing this book, and I hope you find enjoyment in reading it.
