( "Oh, What a Lucky Man He Was", a new book by James Young, has been released by RoseDog Books.

James Young chronicles his amusing and heartfelt life experiences, anecdotes, and people he has crossed paths within his life. Born into the Baby Boomer generation, Jim shares his experiences of growing up in the 1960's, working on the railroad, golfing, hunting, fishing and life. The railroad life he and his family experienced took him to move 19 times in the Eastern and Midwest sections of the United States in his lifetime and exposed him to many interesting characters and experiences. His Seinfeld-like sense of observation of family, amusing events, and interesting characters will bring a smile to your face. His love of life and family gives a great perspective of how he enjoys people and people watching. An entertaining and easy read.
