The Peach Tree Limb

We've Got The Books


Jim Dobkins, UCS PRESS founder, co-author of twelve books and solo author of two books

Remember the movie "Stand by Me"? The Peach Tree Limb is a collection of 50 anecdotes about adventures that Dobkins experienced from mid-1946 to October 1957. The author relives experiences in California as the son of a conman who served six prison terms and was married five times. Ranging from humor to serious, we go from Midnight the nanny goat baby-sitter to nearly driving the pickup off a cliff and getting the truck off the train tracks seconds before a freight train roars by, and a most unusual birthday present.
