Author: Tom Brokaw. Publisher: Random House New York. 1999. 237 pp. 5.75" x 8.5". Book is in like new condition. Dust jacket is in like new condition. This is a book crafted by the author's many memories, youthful insights, and the wisdom that comes with seasons of despair and triumph. It is, most of all, another trubute to the men and women who rode the treacherous currents and sailed with the fair winds of most of the twentieth century. Tom Brokaw was a long time broadcast journalist whose career culminated with his job as anchor of the NBC Nightly News.
