Meet Sam & Peter Stamatis, author of Dandelions for Dinner. Glenview author Sam Stamatis who, with the help of his son Peter, has written a magnificent accounting of life as he experienced it from the last quarter of the nineteenth century through the Greek Civil War of the 1940s. Told through the eyes of a 13-year-old boy, it is an epic tale of youth, family, poverty, war, and unjust loss. It is also an uplifting story of how in the midst of calamity, survival is possible by using your head, taking your hits, and maintaining an undying faith.
