The author writes about his life and times in the Twentieth Century. He says: "The purpose of this book is to help young readers acquire a sense of the past. The 20th century has catapulted us from a horse and buggy Walden-like existence into an accelerated wonderland. Every young person who slows down enough to read 'Sandblaster's Story' will gain a valuable new perspective of his life and world."
