Following his "New York Times "bestselling classics comes this sparkling account of the joys of sharing the simple pleasures of life from Jimmy Carter.
In this wonderfully evocative volume, Jimmy Carter writes about the things that matter most, the simple relaxed days and nights that he has enjoyed with family and friends through the years and across the generations.
Here are lively, witty accounts of exploring the outdoors with his father and with black playmates; making furniture; painting; pursuing new adventures and going places with children, grandchildren, and friends; and sharing life with his wife, Rosalynn.
"Sharing Good Times" is an inspirational guide for anyone desiring to stretch mind and heart and to combine work and pleasure.
