MONTEZUMA, Kan. (PRWEB) July 02, 2015
Winston Nightingale experienced a childhood marked by constant travel, new places and fresh experiences. In his first book, “Colorado Or Bust” (published by Xlibris), he looks back to the simple joys of his growing up years, imparting lessons along the way.
This book is primarily about the author taking the journey from childhood to adulthood against the backdrop of breathtaking places in the US. Nightingale was born in Turlock, California in 1948 and ten years later, the family moved to Crowley, Colorado. After three years in the Mountain State, the family again moved to Ulysses situated in the Sunflower State.
“I believe that most of us have an average childhood and some of the same feelings about our journey of life,” Nightingale says. “I like to read about other people’s stories in life and I don’t think I’m anything but ordinary.”
Vividly recounting his peripatetic childhood, Nightingale is able to impart a story of an ordinary man living an ordinary yet meaningful life. It is through his soulful recollection that readers may see how children grow up in a simple life and home filled with love and respect by each family member.
