January 18, 2023 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
The Gas Station Chronicles, a new book by Henry Friedman, has been released by RoseDog Books.

The Gas Station Chronicles contains true stories from Henry Friedman's time of working at a gas station. Friedman gives a look into the changing times as rural New York met challenges of being in the NYC watershed. This gas station at the time was one of the last full-service stations in the area and now no longer exists. Located in a mostly farming community, the gas station provided Friedman with an opportunity to get to know regular customers, many of whom came into town at least once a week for their needs.

About the Author
Henry Friedman and his wife grew up in small towns in the Catskill Mountains of New York where life was slower, but not quite Mayberry. They both learned the value of a dollar at a young age working part time jobs while still going to school. It was at Henry's job at the gas station that he first met his future wife. Henry and his wife have a son and daughter who now have a family of their own. Henry is a volunteer firefighter in his community and worked for many years as Public Works Superintendent. After over 35 years of public service, Henry retired, which gave him the time to write this book.

The Gas Station Chronicles is a 30-page paperback with a retail price of $11.00 (eBook $6.00). The ISBN is 979-8-88604-612-0. It was published by RoseDog Books of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
