    [Teacher The One Who Made the Difference] EBOOK FREE I really enjoyed this book At first I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't about the teacher that Edmundson sets out to honor and it took me a while to get into the book But in the end I really got absorbed I like books that are set in the 60's and I like to read different points of view about the war and the protesters and the hippies This was a pretty good memoir of that time as judged by me who wasn't even born then what it was like
