Olsen describes summers driving for White Cap Taxi service, 1960-64, on Fire Island, among the most notorious summer resorts in the USA. First anticipated as the ideal summer job with ample time for surfing, beach parties, drinking, and womanizing, he soon yielded to the exhausting task of catering to the whims of such a diverse population.
A memoir of a time long past that no longer exists; Fire Islanders today hold only a vanishing memory of a wilder era when residents freely roamed the island in search of a unique and fabulous summer experience. Portions of this book were selected for the finals in nonfiction contest of the Texas Writers Guild, 2013.
