About My Mother
- True Stories of a Horse-Crazy Daughter and Her Baseball-Obsessed Mother: A Memoir
- By: Peggy Rowe
- Narrated by: Peggy Rowe, John Rowe, Mike Rowe
- Length: 5 hrs and 48 mins
Peggy Rowe’s story of growing up as the daughter of Thelma Knobel is filled with warmth and humor. But Thelma could be your mother. She's the person taking charge - the one who knows instinctively how things should be. They clashed from the beginning - Peggy, the horse-crazy tomboy, and Thelma, the genteel-yet-still-controlling mother. When major league baseball came to town in the early 1950s and turned sophisticated Thelma into a crazed Baltimore Orioles groupie, nobody was more surprised and embarrassed than Peggy.
