Jimmy by James Gerdeman


Jimmy by James Gerdeman

This is a book filled with laughter, fun and curiosity for its readers. It tells the story of Jimmy, his brothers and friends growing with the freedom to explore in Kalida, Ohio, a community comprised of people who participated together to improve the lives of everyone. Family and friends make up the central theme. They all knew each other so the sense of support and confidence always prevailed. This is a biographical look at a small town during the 1950's. It shows how the residents of Ohio, Putnam County, and nearby areas lived. The fun they shared playing at Big Bend and the stories about the church socials, Pioneer Days and the county fairs will make you laugh out loud. The lives of these young boys will entertain you. Family vacations filled with fishing, swimming and the make do rental cabins are comical. This story portrays how one family lived their lives and how the community was the backdrop for Jimmy's innocent freedom.
