Palisades Park

This long historical fiction book was fascinating. It had a lot of detail about a lot of different things: the Great Depression, Pearl Harbor, the military life, how life goes on in a big amusement park, and family relationships. I checked the internet for some of the historical details after reading the book and they were accurate in presentation. A story of families from the 30's until 1971 when the park finally closed. If you lived on the East coast, the book would be more interesting with the geography of the region playing a big part of the book. Very enjoyable. Check our catalog check C
