Product Description

A manual of downward mobility in a world running faster than the speed of life

Lake Shoecraft became my father and my mother. I was nurtured on its shores; its waters were my womb and I was its suckling son. The lake became a passion, a joy, and betimes a sorrow…

In a time so filled with things much bigger than life, this book is dedicated to the small--to real life; a manual of downward mobility; a celebration of joy for things and events often unseen and unthought in a world running faster than the speed of life.

About the Author:
Whole-grain guru, Jack Jenkins, is the former nationally syndicated radio host of “Looking at Tomorrow” and “American Reflections,” the inventor of the Country Living Grain Mill and, not least, the father of seven children. He is a firm believer in appreciating the many small miracles that surround us, yet all too often go unnoticed as we rush through our hurried and busy lives.

  1. best get-away time 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2013

    I laughed, cried, learned and sighed while reading "Swimming the Sun". I experienced the peace and beauty of this world, as the divine creation it is, through the written words that crystallized pictures in my mind. I felt the love of family as it's rightful place as number one in our busy lives. Thank you for sharing your gift of words with all who value a get-away that is refreshing, funny, and humbling.

  2. wonderful & pleasant 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2013

    I have been too long delinquent in sharing my experience with your wonderful book “Swimming the Sun”. I started reading it after my scriptures each night since you gave it to me. I’d read a little every night. It was such a pleasant re-direction from the schedule, rush and technical drive of the day. What a gift to enjoy a more real perspective and have a bit more peace each night. Thank you, Jack!

    Each of your stories in “Swimming the sun” make a moral or spiritual point that uplifts and brightens the day. It should be read a story or two at a time to savor the experience.

    I read Jack’s book slowly, as you would any good book, in order to savor the wit and compassion of each story. I found myself chuckling over things I too had observed ,but also many that had passed me right by. I recommend this book to all those looking for light reading with a hint of pure genius.
