About the Book

It was a time of honored traditions and tight-knit communities ... an era where neighborhood schools thrived, and children played simple games in the fresh outdoors. Finding Lost Marbles: Remembering the ‘50s in River City is a whimsical look back at what once was, before technological gadgetry “wired” our youth, and a reflective consideration of how we can reach back and resurrect some of the values that made the Fifties so fabulous.
