A Long Way From Home by Tom Brokaw

A Long Way From Home

Growing Up in the American Heartland

by Tom Brokaw

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs. 7 Min.


Tom Brokaw, a trusted member of our elite journalistic core, writes a beautiful memoir of his quintessentially American experience: from his parents' life in the thirties, to his own boyhood on the prairies of South Dakota in the forties, to his early career as a reporter in the tumultuous sixties, up to the present. When Brokaw's father, a genius with machines, moved the family to Pickstown, South Dakota, it became the pivotal decision in their lives. They began to live the American dream of community, middle-class pleasures, and a good education for the children. Reflecting upon his "Tom Sawyer boyhood" along the Missouri River, he describes his pilgrimage to adulthood, and considers what brought him and so many Americans of his generation to lead lives a long way from home, yet forever affected by it.
