 The author spent his days spreading the word that life is a precious gift worthy of enjoyment at every opportunity. Now, he offers his autobiography to illustrate this magnificent truth. Given that a country doctor told his parents that their newborn baby had no chance of surviving, it is no wonder he feels lucky to be alive! In The Dodsworth Lane Man, James McGrath describes his wondrous journey, beginning as an Irish descendant from a small farm in Campbell County, Kentucky; and ultimately ending up in Phoenix, Arizona, Americas fifth largest city. Despite many hardships while growing up on the isolated farm during the Great Depression, young James manages to find workalbeit surreptitiouslyin the city and begin to experience a better life. His diverse experiences include nearly half a century in the supermarket business, an eight-year stint in the US Naval Reserve that sees him visiting pre-Castro Cuba, seven years as a sworn law enforcement officer, and over forty years as an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, combining service to his country, his community and his Church. Driving home how life is all about how we handle our circumstances, James shares entertaining stories about unexpected encounters with celebritiesand poignant examples of discovering beauty through grief and tragedy. Its the life. The legend. The Dodsworth Lane Man
