Synopsis:
Bank of the Cottonwoods Bank of the Cottonwoods deals with the first eighteen years of my life and the people around me. The book is part one of a two-book autobiography. My version of my life and the people around me is one of many. The paragraphs are long, the theme varies, but I am not a professional author, just a country boy. The greatest lesson that I learned in those first eighteen years have stuck with me. First of all, you can find good in most people, if you dig deep enough. People also can change; you do not have to be a product of your environment. Perhaps the greatest of all the lessons that is portrayed in Bank of the Cottonwoods is that people, in general, are programmed from childhood. Some are programmed to work, steal, be prejudiced, hate, or even think they are better than others. Also that programming can be passed on down, several generations. Perhaps somebody's mom or daddy was wrong and some were right. You can call my book fact or fiction, but to me they are as real as the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center, because I lived it.
