About this title
Out of the Cotton Fields: and into the Classroom traces the life of Horace Danner, the youngest of ten children in an impoverished Alabama family to whom hunger was a constant companon and a hardscrabble existence was a fact of life. Challenged at every turn but determined to triumph overe misfortune, he found escape in the pages of books and sanctuary in the classroom. Out of the Cotton Fields is a powerful testament to education, and an inspiration to anyone young or old who yearns to realize his or her potential and rise above hardships. School, as well as an enduring thirst for knowledge, has lifted Horace Danner from the despair of poverty to fulfillment in his career of educating others.Review:
