A love of life, the necessary dose of stern stuff in times adversity and humor are the key ingredients to Georgann Halvorson’s autobiography Grandma, Grandma, Who Are You? Written, probably, with the youth sector in mind, the title echoes childhood rhymes – a canny way of handing down knowledge to her family and the young people that she loves. The book is nothing less than an inspiration and stimulus to view life minus modern-day apathy, to devalue the fad of jaded youth that fails to make something that makes life progress.

Halvorson perhaps had this kind of spiritual enervation in mind when she wrote her book. It is the sort of attitude that takes work, responsibility and even love for granted. For her generation, caring moved people to accomplish much, a spirit that seems to have left the American scene for warmer climates. To read the subscript of Halvorson’s story, one sees her concern for today’s generation. Still, her humorous insights do say that there is much hope for today and the comparison between how her generation lived life and how the young live today is evidence enough of progress that is natural to family, to society and its foundations.

It is in that part of living where the will to succeed is deemed necessary that she finds lacking today in comparison to her time. This is where she brings in some wonderfully done arguments via her story. Lighthearted, yes, because Halvorson the author knows how to teach without seeming to do so. To just tell the story of living as she and people her age know and let the native intelligence of her kin and reader friends figure out the moral of her remarkable life.
