Reflections on life in late '80s/early '90s small town New Hampshire, set against major news events of the time period. From the Challenger explosion to the L.A. Riots to hometown police brutality, Hope covers a lot of ground and does it well.

Includes an 11" x 17" New Orleans hand-drawn map with photos...[ continued ]
