Introduction

In this remarkable book, 103-year-old George Dawson, a slave's grandson who learned to read at age 98, reflects on his life and offers valuable lessons in living as well as a fresh, firsthand view of America during the twentieth century. Richard Glaubman captures Dawson's irresistible voice and view of the world, offering insights into humanity, history, hardships, and happiness. From segregation and civil rights, to the wars, presidents, and defining moments in history, George Dawson's description and assessment of the last century inspires readers with the message that-through it all-has sustained him: "Life is so good. I do believe it's getting better."

  "Life is so good"by SandiBeach (see profile) 08/31/11

A wonderful story told by an 101 year old man. He harbors no ill will to anyone in his life. His life was extremely hard, but he loves his life. Very inspiring.
