|The Shoemaker's Last
an autobiography by Don Morrill (1920-2006)
Dons book is an autobiography containing details of his political activities in unions, socialism and the CIO during the early 1930s and 40s. This book describes a workers view of historical events and personal experiences. Don has worked in the field of high voltage engineering, and is willing to reveal secrets of a master potter.
We feel that the publication of this book was a timely response to a generation in need of colorful examples of alternative lifestyles. Don provides a clear view of life changing events from his birth in 1920 (Lynn, MA) and provides us a glimpse into the mind of a free-thinker who has led an exemplary life.
Exerpt from back cover:
From dishwasher to Harvard physicist, ceramics engineer and organic gardener, these pages provide a glimpse into the life of an exceptional human being.
Poet and potter from Lynn, Mass., Don Morrill is an activist in extrordinary times. Growing up in the 1920s and 30s, Don writes about his childhood experiences with vivid clarity. We travel with him through life from Pillings Pond in the 20s to Canada, Africa, and beyond.
A family history, a Lynn guidebook, a kiln manual.
