This collection of 45 oral histories
involving families who lived in the
small, New Hampshire seaside community
of Wallis Sands Beach provides
reflections of simpler days when
children were free to swim and run and
simply enjoy life. Here adults
take time to sit and talk throughout an
evening sunset, and a person's word and
promise is honored. Life as slow paced
then, and this book makes us wonder if
it was a better time.
These unique stories capture moments in
time, preserving them for the future.
