From the middle of the Twentieth Century and, often, from the middle of the United States came people Bill Tammeus describes as Middle Americans. This book is about why they mattered and how America is different today because of their values, approaches and adaptability as they faced and even helped to shape the enormous changes that have swept across American life in the last seventy or more years. This is both a highly personal story of the author's roots and experiences as a representative Middle American as well as a much broader story of people who have made an enormous difference in their communities and their nation.

Woodstock: A Story of Middle Americans based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I am a Jewish ''Bloom'' from Boston, and Mr Tammeus was married to his first wife of nearly 27 years who was a Bloom, too, although of the Methodist branch, he told me. ''I wonder how the Methodist Blooms might be connected to the Jewish Blooms," he added. Bill then told me that he writes about what the one Jewish family in his hometown of Woodstock, Illinois had to endure -- as the one Jewish family there in those days -- in this very book: ''Woodstock: A Story of Middle Americans. '' So I love it.
