Valerie Clubb describes her family and her childhood, and she recalls moving from one place to another when she was growing up. She discusses her father, who was involved in the oil industry and just narrowly missed the drafts for both World Wars One and Two. She talks about moving to Missoula, Montana, as an adult, and explains how the possibility of her sons being drafted for the Vietnam War prompted her involvement in the peace movement. Clubb describes her experience in Burma, her philosophy on war and peace, and her participation in Missoula Women for Peace. She offers her thoughts on a third world war, peace groups in general, and the prospect of living in a peaceful world.
