The stories in the book range from riots and gang activity to the incredibly mundane. I found the book did an excellent job of portraying the author's experience in the US prison system. There were a wide range of activities that someone 'from the outside' wouldn't think of and the whole book was very thought provoking, and made me think about the liberties, freedoms, and luxuries I have in my everyday life. 7 people found this helpful.

Just a Boy from Home With songs, stories and recipes Bill Bourke shared this entire book from memory. It contains stories and historical facts about the Catholic Church, the striping of the land after the South gained independence and the words to an IRA song, The Dublin Trials that his father sang. There are many more songs of Mayo, poems and expressions that otherwise could possibly be forgotten or lost if he had not agreed to sit for many hours reminiscing. You will read about Patrick Shannon, a Mayo man who was a hero in World War I. Also, how his good friend Michael Fitzpatrick received his American citizenship 52 years after his untimely death in Korea. Bill tells of the Irish camaraderie that was already present in Chicago upon his arrival and how he got a job being Just a Boy from Home. The singing and dancing that was found in the neighborhood pubs and said, ?Oh, the fun we had!? But, still the innate loneliness that could be felt in a room full of people for the mother he left behind in the tiny cottage, at the end of the road, in the Village of Ballymacredmond, near the town of Ballina, in the County of Mayo, Ireland. Bill married Kitty Morley, a young girl form County Mayo and continues his training as to be an Engineer Santa Fe Railroad. It has taken a lifetime of trials, errors and successes to create the foundation for his family that is now continuing to flourish in the great city of Chicago in the United States of America.
  • I really enjoyed this book, reminded me of places and people I haven't seen for a long time. Showed what life was like in Chicago back then.

  • "Just a Boy from Home" is obviously a labour of genuine filial piety and love. In a time when there is so much evidence for the breakdown of family structure, I found this quite refreshing. The author, Catherine Bourke Chambers, does an excellent job at describing the gut-wrenching experience of immigration with which her own parents were so intimately familiar; the longing for those left behind, but never forgotten, as well as the `indestructible hope' for their lives in a new land.

    Many stories in this book might admittedly be told by most immigrants of that era (early and mid twentieth century). However, these specific stories are related in the context of the life of her father, William Bourke, who emigrated from Co. Mayo Ireland to England and then to the U.S. If one has any recent familial experience with such movement, regardless of the countries involved, there will be much with which to relate.

    Chambers clearly has inherited a healthy measure of Irish wit in that she has successfully intertwined with her father's story, a small anthology of sorts of poems, recipes, and songs from his native land. This little anthology seems to me a treasure trove of information, and a must for anybody interested in Irish culture.

    To be fair, there is any number of reasons "Just a Boy from Home" might be technically criticized (turgid listing of names, difficult transitions, etc). However, I think to do so would be a bit of a waste in that this work has so much to offer. In fact, it may be that occasional imperfections are what make this book work. This book has a real `down to earth' feel about it and I found it quite moving and thoroughly enjoyable!

    As so often is the case, Herculean struggles such as emigration have the affect of forging real character and lasting values. "Just a Boy from Home" shows this kind of personal evolution in the person of William Bourke, and I suspect the process of writing it likewise reveals similar development in its author.

  • There has been so much written about Ireland's scarred past that Catherine Chambers' Just a Boy from Home is a great corrective. There was more to life in Ireland than the "Troubles." Family and love survived even the English persecution and famine.The Irish are great about keeping secrets, skeletons firmly locked in the family closet. But Bill Bourke, Catherine's father, tells his secrets, and some great stories emerge. As a fellow Chicago south-sider of Irish parents, I bonded immediately with the story.[ASIN:1432717456 Jack O'Keefe Brother Sleeper Agent: The Plot to Kill F.D.R.]
