"Colorado Kid - A
Swedish-American Boy Goes West" just
released by Lost Fox Press.
Willis Peterson made his reputation as an
Arizona photojournalist, a globe-trotting nature photographer,
and a college teacher. Colorado Springs of '30s & `40s
comes to life in this new memoir. Peterson focuses not on his
success but on the reasons for it-the "ear-twisting" of
the two strong-willed Swedish women who raised him and
the forced creativity of having to contend with asthma while
growing up in Colorado Springs during the Great Depression and
World War II.
