Memories from Maple Street, U.S.A.:
Leaving Childhood Behind

by Cheryl Pierson, Kathleen Rice Adams, Celia Yeary, Shayna Matthews, Vella Munn, Vonn McKee, Carol Huff, Sue A. Monkress, Jim Landwehr, and L.D.B. Taylor

Growing up is a miraculous time. The journey from the freedom of childhood to the workaday life of becoming an adult is filled with both poignancy and wonder. Fond memories of pedaling bikes through honeysuckle-scented streets with a pack of neighborhood friends and playing “kick the can” and stickball on warm summer evenings alight with fireflies are accompanied by the inevitable loss of people and places dear to the heart—and a seminal moment when we know we’re leaving childhood behind.

           These are the stories of a turning point—when the world shifted, and nothing would ever be the same. In this first collection of the MEMORIES FROM MAPLE STREET, U.S.A., series, Sundown Press brings you real-life stories, from the touching to the humorous, the inspirational to the adventurous, and a wonderful group of childhood memories you’ll never forget.
