A story of growing up in Avon Lake, Ohio in the Golden Age of the 1950's.

For the children of the 1950's-Baby Boomers and those just before-it was their Golden Age, a time of sunny summer days on Lake Erie and an idyllic childhood in the village of Avon Lake, Ohio.

Writer Don Libey weaves together people, places, scents and sounds in this coming-of-age reminiscence of a time and place ". . . where the sun was so warm and the days so endless and we were, simply, happy."

Like Grover's Corners, or Winesburg, Libey recreates a soft glow of childhood for those who never give up trying to go home; a sense of place and belonging for those who-regardless of where they grew up-are always looking for their own lost Avon Lake.

A published poet and author of over a dozen business books, this is Libey's first prose work. He still lives on the water, this time in the lovely seaside hamlet made famous by Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, Bodega Bay, California north of San Francisco.
