Seasons: A Tale of the Ups and Downs of Growing Up
By: Daniel Erdely
About the Book
Seasons, an embellished autobiography, is a story of growing up and learning to recognize the value of all kinds of people. The humor is seen through the eyes of an old man looking back at the foibles and follies of youth, along with the sadness of failing to appreciate true friendship. Operating his beloved Comet roller coaster is symbolic of Erdely’s life journey. He hopes in some way his story will help others see the worth and uniqueness of people, regardless of how they look or where they come from.
