'Four Score and More' is a unique American success story, but offers something for anyone who has lived throughout the last century.

With sites making a splash, there’s a renewed interest in understanding and learning where we come from and who our ancestors are.

“Four Score and More” shares a written history of one family through the eyes of just one of its modern descendants. Author LaVera Edick shares the stories of many lifetimes—including her own.

Edick offers memories of the 1937 opening of the Golden Gate Bridge, the 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor and many other historic events the 90 year old has witnessed.

Edick excels not only in the written word but also in visual arts: she illustrated the book’s cover and also provided visual illustrations included throughout the book.

“Four Score and More” is a unique American success story but offers something for anyone who has lived throughout the last century.
