NBC News Anchor Tom Brokaw recalls his youth in three South Dakota towns, including Yankton, where he started his broadcasting career as a radio disc jockey. He also recalls his cordial but then unromantic relationship with Meredith Auld, his future wife, a Miss South Dakota who long saw him as irresponsible--and a rocky college career marred by partying. Brokaw's account is filled with nostalgia for an idyllic time that reflects the admiration he showed for WWII veterans in THE GREATEST GENERATION. Although it doesn't carry the weight of his previous book, this memoir will please fans of the earlier work.
