The funny and insightful memoir of LaNor "Corky" Francis, a woman who lived by the motto, "Carry on, what else is there to do?" Through sixty-six years of marriage as a military wife, rasing two kids, living in twenty-nine different homes, and over one hundrd years of life, Carrying On is LaNor's story as told by her daughter, Linda.
From atop a towering redwood tree, seventeen-year-old Jesse can see beyond the difficult reality of his life on the ground. Homeless, Jesse camps in the forest with his drug-addicted mom and little sister. Diligent about showering, doing laundry, and school work, Jesse is determined to keep his circumstances a secret. But one girl cares enough to find out the truth.
