Many Houses: The Story of My Life

Front Cover - Many Houses: The Story of My Life

Knaphus, Marie Anna, Many Houses: The Story of My Life, Self-Published, Ames, Iowa (2002), Spiral Bound, unpaginated (approx. 125 pages)

In my book I have chosen to recall chief events in my life in reference to the many houses in which I lived. In doing this I have come to a better understanding of why our family moved so often.

I have written this book mainly for my children and grandchildren. As I have grown older I have come to appreciate the value of family history. I wish I had asked more questions of my parents in regard to their early lives. Hopefully this book will help my family better appreciate the roots from which they came.
