John Leard's New Book, 'A Kid in the Fifties: LIFE in an OREGON LUMBER TOWN', Brings a Closer Look Into the Small-Town Life of a Man Growing Up in Oregon in the '50s

Fulton Books author John Leard, a retired telecommunication technician and airborne radio technician in the Vietnam War, has completed his most recent book, "A Kid in the Fifties: LIFE IN AN OREGON LUMBER TOWN": a fascinating autobiography chronicling a journey of coming-of-age, adulthood, and lifelong lessons.

Leard shares, "Growing up in the 1950s was much different than present times, especially in a small Oregon town, where sawmills, plywood mills, and logging were almost exclusively the livelihood. I have tried to convey that atmosphere herein by telling of my growing up in such a place. It tells of some of my successes—and a lot of my failures in some cases embarrassing. My hope is that the readers will be able to relate to many of my situations and maybe even recognize some of the descriptions of my little town. I have written much of this tongue-in-cheek style, so try to employ a sense of humor reading it."

Published by Fulton Books, John Leard's book brings a real-life story of failures and successes and the values that come in between.

The 1950s may have been decades ago, but in this biography lies the moments that are still fresh from memory.
