In the spring of 1974 two 18-year old boys leave northern Rhode Island on a 60-day cross-country journey across America aboard a Greyhound bus. 100 BOWEN STREET chronicles the true-life adventures of these young men, including additional stories from the turbulent 1970s.
Rogues Island Memoir
(Free River Press, Decatur, Iowa, Publisher)
A true coming-of-age story set in the northern Rhode Island village of Limerock starting in the mid-1960s. Seemingly safe from the social unrest, urban chaos, and unpopular war traumatizing the rest of America, the death of the authors' fourteen-year-old sister in September 1968 leaves his family in shambles. Meanwhile, the angry forces of a world gone mad draw closer and closer to home. (Please note: there was a single printing of this book in 2001. It is now available on-line in used condition only, with a 2nd edition planned for publishing in the future.)
