Coffee Time, a retired trained telecommunicator of the United States Air Force, has completed his new book “Boy from Kansas and the Whistling Blacksmith”: a purpose-driven book about a boy and his friend who deal with the hardships of the Great Depression with resourcefulness, smithing, and whistling.

The author shares, “These are the stories and tall tales of one boy and his friend who started out in life a little bit out of the ordinary! He was brought into this world by Stork-37 during cold, wintry blizzard conditions in a small village in west-central Kansas farmland called Dundee and had to endure hardships that allowed him to grow up quite quickly. Entrepreneurial and inquisitive by nature, he had abilities and foresight that few boys his age had. That inquisitiveness helped teach him important lessons in life. ‘Live to learn. Learn to live’ was one of his favorite sayings.

Living the farming lifestyle in the 1929s, he quickly learned how to save resources and use material and tools at his disposal for creating and building small projects such as beehives, chicken and turkey shelters, and small rabbit hutches, at the same time out for taking walks and discussing life with his friend, Walking Crow.

His family, especially his grandpa, encouraged his growth and assisted him with his ideas and abilities. Whistling was an art in those days, and many men made a profession of whistling and singing as groups or doing solo acts. Although well-known for his whistling and singing voice, Grandpa just whistled and sang for pleasure and the freedom to create tunes as he worked at smithin’!

Together, one boy and one blacksmith, along with family, toured the Great Depression year of 1929 and made it a fun year!”

Published by Page Publishing, Coffee Time’s tale proves that life’s burdens can be fought with courage, faith, and steadfastness as well as positivity and seeking the silver lining amid the ordeals.
