Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

CBS network anchor Rather ( The Camera Never Blinks ) has not had a particularly good press, but that may change with publication of this autobiography, written with the author of Bay of Pigs. Born in 1931 into a family headed by a blue-collar worker and living on the wrong side of the bayou in Houston, the future newsman grew up during the Depression and World War II; with his father steadily employed, there was no actual privation. As a youth Rather suffered a long siege of rheumatic fever, then curable only by bed rest, which ended his dream of becoming a football star. He had a large, interesting and supportive extended family, its members recalled affectionately here. The book takes Rather to his departure for Sam Houston State Teachers College in Huntsville, Tex., leaving material for a sequel. The general effect is warm and engagingly anecdotal. The style, however, is strange: it consists almost exclusively of short sentences with no polysyllabic words, as if to reinforce the impression that Rather is just folks. Photos not seen by PW.

From Library Journal

In this memoir of his childhood years, Rather writes, "I'm happy I grew up in the times and places and with the parents, relatives, kids, coaches, bosses, and heros who populate my memories." Recollections of living in small-town Texas during the Great Depression and World War II with his extended family, schoolmates, and townsfolk fill Rather's book with anecdotes both engaging and warmly nostalgic. In a voice that is sure and strong from his years of broadcasting but also familiar and folksy as if he was telling his story from a porch rocker, Rather also describes his first work experiences and his long bout with and recovery from rheumatic fever. This is not the first autobiographical work from Rather; his best-selling The Camera Never Blinks ( LJ 6/1/77) effectively dealt with the inner workings of TV network news and set the stage for this successfully narrated preamble to his career. Recommended for popular collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/91.

My wife liked this one so well that she wanted to own a copy. She said it makes easy and interesting reading, partly because it comes from a time we remember.

My husband loved it. He actually grew up in the same neighborhood, went to the same schools as Dan Rather. He said it was like going back in time.
