Don Schroeder explores the sharp contrast between the dark nights and bright childhood memories that opened the doors for a boy growing up as part of the Silent Generation. After the Depression and World War II, conditions improved for many Americans, including Don and his family. With wit and humor, Don invites the world to see Indianapolis as this ""nasty little gutter tramp"" saw it. Sample city chicken or scrambled brains with eggs, mow down imaginary Nazis, and turn off ""Fibber McGee and Molly,"" the favorite nighttime radio show, in time to confuse enemy bombers and save Indianapolis from destruction. Don relishes those nearly forgotten years and the memories of God reaching for a boy slip-sliding along during this difficult period of Air Raid Nights and Radio Days. ""A lively and interesting memoir of the 1940s through the '50s."" --Judith La Fourest, Past National President, National League of American Pen Women ""The stories of growing up in Indianapolis were more than reminiscent--they still hold true. Kids still roam those streets and parents still struggle. You can imagine the interest (this) book sparked for my group."" --Tracy Heaton de Martinez, Executive Director, NESCO
