Remember the movie Stand by Me? The Peach Tree Limb is a collection of fifty anecdotes about adventures that Jim Dobkins experienced from mid-1946 to October 1957. The author relives his experiences in California as the son of a con man who served six prison terms and was married five times. Ranging from the humorous to the serious, we go from Midnight the nanny-goat babysitter to nearly driving the pickup off a cliff and getting the truck off the train tracks seconds before a freight train roars by to a most unusual birthday present. The Peach Tree Limb is a triumphant story of how one boy held everything together through faith and the solid anchor provided by his grandparents, who lived on a truck farm / chicken ranch across the street from where Disneyland was later built.
