What was it like to be a teen-age
girl growing up in Monona, Wisconsin during the 60s?
Amid political turbulence, social reforms and the Vietnam war, adolescence was challenging enough for a middle-class Wisconsin girl named Ann Schumacher. Her love for animals sparked her ambition to become a veterinarian, yet she struggled with grades. Through her diary, she expressed her thoughts and dreams, hopes and frustrations about life's injustices, striving always for love.
In her memoir, Ann Ulrich Miller divulges her most intimate writings as she emerges into womanhood. Included are unforgettable tales of growing up in a family of six kids, close childhood friendships, fleeting and “serious” loves, influential dreams, an addiction to Nature and living things, with outspoken personal snippets on the political events of that time.
|Ann Ulrich Miller was born and
reared in Wisconsin, and received her Bachelor’s degree in English
from Michigan State University. "Growing up in the late '60s was an
especially exciting time to be young and alive," she says. "We saw and
experienced so much. Our generation had so much to be thankful for, and
often we did not realize how lucky we were. After all, we did have the
grooviest rock 'n roll ever created."
In 1978, she moved with her husband and first child to Colorado, where she raised two more sons. Now she is a grandmother living and writing in Washington state. More of her life is told in her spiritual memoir, Throughout All Time.
