Picked Off the Cherry Tree

ByLinda HamiltonRobert Hamilton

The Life and Times of Robert L. Hamilton as told to Linda A. Hamilton. In Picked Off the Cherry Tree, Bob Hamilton recounts fascinating stories of a lifetime that started with his adoption and the challenges of growing up poor but loved in Indiana. Moving to Long Beach, California, he made lifelong friends, learned how the upper middle class lived, and blossomed into a leader. Thanks to his mother’s insight, he was “always going to college,” even if no one ever discussed where the money would come from. At U.C. Berkeley, he experienced life changing events including the loss of a girlfriend to polio, the discovery of a mentor and surrogate father, and a trip to India that would change his views of the world forever. Clearly evident throughout the stories is a deep love of family and friends and the integral role of laughter, hard work, honest salesmanship, and integrity in the life of “Hambone”.
