Overview

This story, set in the Piney Woods country of East Texas, spans most of a century, from shortly after the close of the Civil War to the 1960's. It is the story of Charley White, who was born in the middle of those woods—in a decaying windowless log cabin a few years after his mother and father were freed from slavery. His childhood, lived in almost unbelievable poverty, was followed by financial stability achieved in middle age through years of struggle. And then, in order to obey God's will, he abandoned this secure life, and for forty years he waged a one-man war on poverty and intolerance.

Winner of the Carr P. Collins Award (best nonfiction book) of the Texas Institute of Letters, No Quittin' Sense presents the story of Rev. C. C. "Charley" White, whose life has inspired thousands of readers since the book was first published in 1969.

This edition is a digital facsimile of the 1969 edition.

Editorial Reviews

Southwest Review
White's story embraces, besides a personal triumph, the attaining of harmonious and fair race relations without resort to violence.
Texas Observer
This is a moving book. I feel strong temptation to say it is some kind of classic.
Texas Parade
In today's cold, fast and commercial world, there are few stories any more you can truly call beautiful but No Quittin' Sense . .. is one that fits this highest category.
