About the book
The Sounds and Smells of My Childhood Part II invite the reader to pause and remember the times of their own youth. Like the first book, it is a nostalgic journey, with fond memories, tremendous humor and laughter, and at times, tears. But the author always shares the beauty of the Sault, the lovely St. Mary’s river, and the grandeur and power of Lake Superior as well as the pride and resilience of its people. Sault Sainte Marie has a unique historic significance in the state of Michigan, and the author shares that importance.
Enjoy once again your own youth as you allow yourself to go back to a simpler time as you recall the sounds and smells of your own childhood.
