Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 078843196X, Paperback)

Pursuing a Ph.D. at forty is hard enough, but when you add a wife and seven small children, it becomes an adventure well worth the telling. Jack Haberstroh's account of his family's three-year struggle at the University of Iowa is a story of survival on an emotional, academic, financial, and physical level. Three years of oatmeal for breakfast, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch. It is also a testament to the power of love and family commitment. Join this family in their 1966-1969 journey as they sacrifice and pull together during this exciting and colorful period in America's history. Guests were gathered around the TV at Dr. Haberstroh's graduation party to witness the first moon walk by Neil Armstrong. These pages are filled with details of life in the late 60s: $2 haircuts, $.50 a gallon milk, and a "Turquoise Turkey" school bus. Numerous photos enhance the text.
