4 Szykitka, Walter (edited and compiled by) Public Works A Handbook for Self-Reliant Living: First Aid and Survival, Child Care, Health, Food, Farm and Home, Tools and Constructions, Etc.
New York Links 1974 1st Edition; 1st Printing Paperback Very Good-

If you really want to know, I was born in Millville, New Jersey, in 1931. I was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, thrown out of school for two years for refusing to salute the flag in 1941 and 1942, returned to school in 1943 when the Supreme Court reversed an earlier decision and said such a punishment was unconstitutional. My formal education ended upon graduation from Millville Memorial High School in 1948. I worked as a truck driver’s helper until 1951 when I took up residence at Bethel, the world headquarters of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Brooklyn, New York. By the time I left after seven years, I had worked my way up to important administrative duties while simultaneously losing my faith in the religion, its leaders, its teachings, and eventually god himself, herself, itself, whatever. ... I organized the first travel agency ever to be owned by a department store, in this case, Dayton’s in Minneapolis, the company that eventually morphed into Target. Many other travel positions took me to at least 50 countries organizing special-interest group tours and conferences for museums, zoological societies, psychiatrists, medical doctors, teachers, etc. Along the way, I also produced several books, including “PUBLIC WORKS, A Handbook for Self-Reliant Living” that was briefly on the New York Times best-seller list. In 1973 I promoted the book on the Mike Douglas Show. Give yourself a laugh by watching that 9-minute appearance on YouTube. Subsequently, I received an informal education in economics while working for twenty years as a researcher and writer with economist Walter H. Diamond. Today, I describe myself as an 81-year-old unreconstructed Sixties liberal Utopian who was radicalized when I landed in Greenwich Village in 1967 amidst the counterculture revolution. I am still living in Manhattan, looking forward to taking advantage of the communications revolution to spread ideas I have long held about the inevitability of the continued positive evolution of human society.

His paternal great-grandfather was a brother of Brigham Young and was reputedly instrumental in founding the Mormon settlement. Vash Young's early life was one of deprivation and hardship. His father was more often absent than not, and his mother died when he was only 12. Vash's schooling was cut short as he had to help support the family - including three younger siblings - then living with his grandparents. Tragedy struck again when his grandmother died and he left Salt Lake City at 16 years of age to seek his fortune in Chicago where his older brother was then living. He struggled to find employment initially due to his lack of education and basic numeracy. He eventually moved to New York City where he continued to battle depression, self-doubt and failure until the revelation that turned him into a success. His philosophy placed great emphasis on helping others, and a series of books were one expression of this."
