A Day in the Sun
"A Day in the Sun" transports readers back to rural Oklahoma in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Author Norman McGuire shares the experiences he had growing up on his grandparent's farm. McGuire's story is imbued with colorful characters and true, memorable anecdotes, from early mishaps throwing a tomahawk to getting sprayed by a skunk. McGuire's evocative storytelling will allow you to experience the world through adolescent eyes, with all the joy, wonder, and sorrow youth brings. In "A Day in the Sun, " you'll discover a world that now exists only in memories and perhaps find yourself exclaiming, as McGuire did, "What a great day God has given to me!"
