About this title


The Bridge Crew is the story of a group of kids growing up in a Blue Ridge mountain village in the 1940s and 50s. This was a time before television, video games, personal computers, and personal automobiles. Adults labeled them the "bridge crew" for their meeting place on a pedestrian walkway underneath the canopy of a huge sycamore tree in the center of town. There the kids met to plan their "activities." These activities included such antics as building huge spider webs on the bridge from Horace Isenhower's waste socks from his tiny hosiery mill to oiling the tracks to watch the Virginia Creeper attempt to leave the Warrensville depot. The Bridge Crew demonstrates the creativity of youth who never realized they were poor until the government began telling them. They were rich with a village full of characters that helped form them into responsible adults. It was a great time and a great place to be young and energetic. There were times when the adults did not think so. Many antics were not funny when they took place; however time has a way of turning bad situations into humorous ones.
