The Adventure of Two Lifetimes
By Peggy Newland Goetz and Brian Goetz with June Meyer Newland
One of the best touring narratives of the modern era fuses the story of Peggy and Brian Goetz with the tale of Peggy's mother, June. This is not so much a travelogue as it is a memoir of time, of places, of a mother and a daughter. It's a book about how one woman's courage and quest for a place in the world forever changed her life, and how her daughter emerged from the shadow of that feat to find her own place in the world, together with her husband. And, finally, it's a book about America and Americans, in two very different generations.
