This autobiographical narrative is much more than a war story.  It describes Walter's early life in pre-war Germany and tells of his daring escape over the border to West Germany, immigration to America and his struggles in pursuit of the American Dream---from the book cover.   Friendswood resident and subject of the book, Walter Zehl, will be on hand to share his story and answer questions.
