A German grandfather with a twinkle in his eye, a high school principal who makes a terrible mistake, an old drunk in a ramshackle house, a man long dead who built a mansion and founded a city. Told with humor and heart, this series of stories reminds us that sometimes to become what we truly are, it takes a village, and then some.
