Tractors, Planes, Golf and Dames
by Don W. Volk
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DESPITE THREE WARS, TRAGIC LOSS, PGA GOLFER LIVES HIS DREAMS
CHANDLER, AZ (May, 2011) A testament to the resilience of the human spirit, Don Volk's memoir, Tractors, Planes, Golf and Dames, recounts the life of an ordinary man with an extraordinary ability to transcend the evils of three wars and the painful loss of two loves of his life to fulfill his dreams and find – and risk – true love again.
Volk writes about his long career with the U.S. Army Air Corps and the U.S. Air Force; serving as a pilot through three of the most major conflicts of our lifetime: World War II (The Greatest Generation), Korea, and Vietnam; and fulfilling his dream of earning membership in the PGA of America and becoming a life member. Along the way, he organizes countless tournaments and meets some of golf's most colorful characters. But the heart of his story is the openly deep love he had for his wife Petie and of the trauma of her unsuccessful bout with cancer. Unimaginably, he fell in love again with his girlfriend Sandy, only to lose her to the disease as well. With the strength and zeal that characterize his eight decades plus, he fell in love and married again, to a "wonderful, sweet woman," Wandi.
Volk's is a story that will inspire readers, not because of any headline-grabbing feats of glory but rather because of its message of gentle perseverance, and proof that dreams can become reality – time and time again.
