The Days Gone By: An Autobiography of Richard Altenhoff Sr. as Written by Himself

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Nov 21, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 96 pages
With the support of my three children, Christie, Tammy and Richard jr. and further encouragement from my niece Debbie and nephew Anthony I was finally able to finish this book. This is a true life story that contains humor, violence, and tragedy & heartbreak, stories of what it was really like to grow up in a 1950's small town. This totally non-fiction book is entertaining as well as sad. I told it as I remembered it, and wrote it exactly as it happened. I am now living in Crystal Lake, Il. and am a proud grandfather of 6 girls and 3 boys and cannot wait for them to read this.

About the author (2012)

About the author? I was going to delete this because this book is about the author and most of you already know who I am but didn't know me back then, so there, I'm glad that I cleared that up. This is a fun trip through the 1950's and I hope you enjoy it. This book is factual and is told exactly the way I remember it. Based on my memory, some stories are long and some are short. I always tell things "the way it is," straight forward... You can believe it or not, but have fun and just go with it.
