We often encounter people that have fascinating lives and Charles L. Fields is one of them. In the preface of his book, Charles says "This book is more than a memoir. It is also a collage of travel journals, reflections and observations."
I smiled when I reflected on my own experiences of my first car and it certainly wasn't near as exciting as the one Charles purchased. For twenty-five dollars be bought a "1938 baby blue converted funeral car with pull-down velvet shades and other bizarre accoutrements. " I also enjoyed the short travel log of his trip to Hawaii because it reminded me of going to the same places there many years ago.
This is an enjoyable book to read; nothing exciting or outstanding but it's not meant to be. This is one ordinary man telling others the stories of his life, stories that reflect a journey that many will find reflective.
