Life Stories of a Hero: Selections from the poetry of Howard Palmer, native Oregonian, 1907-1988
Publication date: April 2009
Digital Book format: PDF (DRM-Free)
At a time when things may seem a bit out of control, here's a chance to enjoy some enchanting stories about a time the world almost forgot. Stories like, "Ode to the Pioneers", Grandpa's view of what life was like for the early settlers. Or "Just a Fisherman's Dream", a humorous look at the classic fish tale.
All together he churned out some 150 works. Not all are award winners, but some are guananteed to give you a smile for a moment or two.
Grandpa never imagined his poems would make it beyond his family and friends. He also did all he could to help any and all children. His charity of choice was the Shriners Hospital, and with that as my inspiration, I have plans for a portion of the proceeds from the sale of "Life Stories of a Hero" to be pledged to that wonderful organization that does so much for the kids.
