"I can remember the day I was born." And thus begins the life story of Jim Dick. A storyteller like his father and immigrant grandmother, this ninety-three-year-old retired North Dakota farmer has put pen to paper to preserve a lifetime of memories from the Great Depression to today. Insatiably curious and always driven to make the most of his life, Jim has been a progressive farmer and steward of the land, a community builder, and a gentleman. As he enters the last chapter of his life, Jim's book is a guide for embracing life, appreciating the past, and reflecting on what is to come.
