Inhaltsangabe: Most autobiographies are written about the profound achievements of profound men and women. But the story of North Dakota South Pacific is neither, at least in our traditional interpretation of that word. The Great Depression and World War II are topics that have given birth to many stories of heroics. Most people don't live the life of the hero, however. They live simply to live. This book, then, is not typical in at least this way: it is about the ordinary, the everyday, the sometimes mundane experiences of a young man who grew up, and served his country, during extraordinary times. There are droughts and disasters and battles in these pages, to be sure. But mostly, there is life. Life lived as millions of other ordinary young men and women lived it during a particularly turbulent period in our history. This is the story of one such man. Plain, simple, and ordinary. And yet, to those of us who knew him, his achievements, and his life, are most profound.
