Moving Experiencesby Bill Rhodes, Billy Rhodes
Moving Experiences is a collection of childhood memories and imaginations of the author, who grew up in the northwestern corner of Arkansas during the 1940s and 1950s. His parents were farm laborers who married during the Depression and struggled to raise a family of seven. The author's family moved more than a dozen times before they settled at 101 Lake Street in Bentonville, where his mother put her foot down and said they would move no more. It was there that the author learned to work and play with reckless abandon. At sixteen, the author left his family to work on his uncle's farm near Calico Rock, where he built the values and visions that never left him.
