Description
 
Tom Brokaw. Tom Brokaw writes of growing up in the American heartland, & of the people, the culture, & the values that shaped him in his youth & still do today. Born in SD, in 1950, Tom made his first public performance at the age of 4. After the war, the family moved to Pickstown, a new town built to house workers constructing the Ft. Randall Dam. He describes watching this instant town go up around him, & the happiness of growing up here in the 50s. When Tom was 15, he got a job at a local radio station, spinning the new rock-&-roll records. There he met Meredith Auld, who would eventually become his wife. As he describes his pilgrimage, Brokaw also reflects on what brought him & so many Americans to lead lives a long way from home, yet forever affected by it. Ill.
