About this title
Format Paperback Subject FictionAbout the Author:
I was born May 14th, 1931, on a farm 4 miles west of the little town of Floyd, Virgina, in the mountains of southwest Virginia. I graduated from Floyd High School in May of 1947, second from the top in a class of 52 seniors. We farmed without the benefit of any type of modern equipment, using teams of horses, and had no electricity or running water in the house. We did have a telephone mounted on the wall, that had a crank on it's side which was used to ring the local operator, and about the time I began school, we got a battery-powered radio. It's the truth, my older brother and I walked 1 1/2 miles to catch a school bus. When my older brother graduated, he left home to go work in the West Virginia coal fields, and a year later I followed him. I left the coal fields to work for a General Contractor who at that time, was building roads but later became involved with strip mining in southwest Virginia, near Kentucky. Then I received my draft notice but elected to enlist and served in the Air Force during the Korean War. In 1964, I began a career in Textiles and Garment Manufacturing. When I retired at the end of December, 2008, I was the Director of Import and Exports for a large Textile company, and had lived in Spartanburg, S.C. for 26 years. We bought a home in Mt. Carmel, Tennessee, to be near my wife's family who all live in east Tennessee.
