Norvals family may have had to scrabble for a living during the Great Depression, but dont tell him he grew up poor. He and his siblings hunted up plenty of adventure on one Wyoming homestead after another, while their folks found clever ways to eke out a living. In this memoir, natural-born storyteller Norval Simonson relates true stories from his childhood and teenage years near the Wind River. Hard work, rambles through the canyon, wild critters and moonshiners, pranks and calamities -- Hang On Tight takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride through life in the American West of the early 20th century.
