Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "From Hell to Iowa" is about an incredible journey taken by Charles Notis. Charlie and his mother were separated from the rest of the family when the border between Albania and Greece was suddenly closed at the end of World War II when Charlie was less than a year old. Charlie's father, older sister, grandmother, and uncle emigrated to the U.S., but Charlie and his mother were stuck in Albania for ten long years. Albania was more backward than a Third World country is today. It was under the ruthless dictatorship of Enver Hoxha, who cared more about building hundreds of thousands of machine gun bunkers to protect Albania against the bitter enemy, America, than he cared about the wellbeing of the population. In fact, he imprisoned or executed many thousands of innocent people. Charlie and his mother made a miraculous escape from this hell on earth in October 1954 and joined the rest of the family in Brockton, Massachusetts, in September 1955. While living in Massachusetts, the author experienced some incredible historical events that took place in the turbulent 1960s. One of these, the Vietnam War, is a very special event that greatly affected Charlie's life.The author also acquired an amazing fascination with the weather soon after arriving in Brockton. This eventually led him to enroll at Iowa State University, where he received a master's degree in meteorology. During graduate school at Iowa State, the author met a young lady who was majoring in mathematics, and he ended up marrying this beautiful lady. The fascinating story continues when Charlie along with Harvey Freese founded a weather consulting company called Freese-Notis Weather in Des Moines, Iowa. The contrast between where Charlie lived for the first ten years of his life compared to where he ended up, and everything that happened between, is appropriately titled, "From Hell to Iowa.".

Descrizione libro Corn Publishing. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Hardcover. 146 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.From Hell to Iowa is the story of an incredible journey taken by Charles Notis. The author was born in 1944 in far southern Albania, which was under the ruthless dictatorship of Enver Hoxha for about forty years. Charlie and his mother were separated from the rest of the family when the border between Albania and Greece was suddenly closed in the spring of 1945. After living in this hell on earth for the first ten years of his life, Charlie and his mother made a miraculous escape from Albania in October 1954. They then joined the rest of the family a year later and settled in Brockton, Massachusetts. The chain of events that followed are miraculous in their own regard. The Vietnam War was especially significant in the authors life, although he served in the Army only a short time. He found his way to graduate school at Iowa State University where he earned a masters degree in meteorology and then, with meteorologist Harvey Freese, founded a weather consulting company called Freese-Notis Weather. This process, along with raising a family in Iowa, is also fascinating in the way it came about. This hard-to-believe contrast in the authors life is appropriately titled From Hell to Iowa. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Codice libro della libreria 9781627750110
