My Life So Far is an autobiography, a collection of essays, poems, and additional writings from the author's relatives. Mrs. Roberts wrote it for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, never expecting to publish it for sale to anyone else. It is, however, a story many could relate to about small-town Nebraska, school days, tragedies, career, travel, marriage, and family. Among the topics are Roy Rogers, grandma and the bull, religion, living in Japan and Germany, roadkill warriors, getting organized, teaching and other musings and memories from a long life. The book reflects the author's faith, passion for life, optimism, love of family, and sense of humor.
