Description

On this episode of Our American Stories, Steve Thomas, Oxford, Mississippi's local magician and balloon artist, shares his story with us. Wayne Gretzky tells us how the death of his father, Walter Gretzky, prompted an avalanche of tributes for his genuine, approachable, authentic personhood. For Dennis Peterson's father, "Making Do" meant going to extreme lengths to save a dime...sometimes to his detriment.
