Many memories last a lifetime. In George's Tales of Yesteryear, author George Goodwin shares some of the memories from his lifetime. Born in 1917 and raised on a farm in southeastern Ohio, Goodwin narrates events of general historic significance and documents his point of view, often with a humorous slant.

In "Hoeing Corn for Potatoes," Goodwin's story reflects the hopelessness of people in his community when the mines closed in 1924 and 1925. The "Millfield Mine Explosion" recalls the feelings of Goodwin as a sixth-grader when an explosion killed 161 miners. His other recollections include a tale from his first trip to see his great-grandmother when it took all day to drive forty miles. But perhaps most memorable is Goodwin's trip to Mallorca, Spain, to visit his daughter.

The twenty-one stories in this collection reflect the life of a hardworking business man. With an eye for detail and the keen sense of a storyteller, Goodwin both informs and entertains.
