My Life with 19 Siblings

by Ronald James Newton

About The Book

This is the remarkable story of the Newton family, of twenty siblings, and the early life of Ronald James Newton as well as his journey to adulthood in rural Northeastern Colorado. In this stimulating narrative, Ronald James Newton tells the story of the Newton family, growing up during the Great Depression, World War II, and the ’50s in a small town lodged within a rich agricultural landscape lying along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Throughout this story, covering several generations of the Newton family, one learns about their everyday lives, their dependence upon one another, and their strong work ethic and their religious value code, all of which ensure their survival.

These are stories about the lives of family members during harsh times, being shaped by their interactions with one another and with individuals and institutions in their community. It tells the story of how the siblings strive for emotional maturity and sports success. This brief look into rural life during the first half of the last century occurs during an important time in the history of Colorado and the nation and describes an inspiring snapshot of a pioneering matriarch, guiding and nurturing her numerous children while constantly reminding them of the peril of self-centeredness and the virtue of cooperation.
