A curious, creative boy whose parents encouraged his explorations and obsessions. An affectionate memoir of boyhood.Award-winning artist Robert Hewitt shares the experience of what it was like to be a boy in 1950s America when he filled the family sunroom with model trains, raided the refrigerator for chocolate milk, sneaked firecrackers across state lines in a suitcase brought back from visits to his indulgent grandparents, and with his best friend - another science nut - scavenged alleys for project parts.It was a time of boredom in school, fun in the Boy Scouts, growing fascination with girls, and encounters of the scary kind with over-protective fathers. There was the first car that mysteriously knew to the penny how much money he'd made that weekend bagging groceries - and shaped its repair needs accordingly. There was the brand-new second car that demanded dangerous accessories. And there was the girl, the special girl, who almost stripped its gears, yet remained an object of desire.Here's a warm picture of growing up in a more-innocent time in a pleasant neighborhood where everyone knew everyone else - and what they'd been up to - and were quick to pick up a phone and share that news. And there was the family, long-suffering but loving, which provided the supportive environment that made all this possible.Buy No Instructions Needed: An American Boyhood in the 1950s today to glimpse a past that really was another country, where boys did do things differently.
