Summary, etc.: "After the death of his mother, the author reflects on the people, activities, and experiences of his youth in the small Indiana town in which he grew up and how they helped shape him as a person. He reminisces about the positive impacts his neighbors, friends, and relatives had on his life and talks about how even the smallest gestures can sometimes stick in one's memories forever. His recurring theme of how basketball impacted his life and how it was always prevalent in his thoughts in quintessential Hoosier. His story comes full circle after the death of his father with him wondering if his connection with the place he held most dear and helped shape him as a person may become a distant memory."--Page [4] of cover.
