    Rocky Comfort by Wayne Holmes

    I absolutely could not put this book down. Wayne Holmes "rambles on" with one story after another, but it works. It really, really works. If you are interested in history, or the Ozarks, or rural life in the early twentieth century, this is the book for you. Mr. Holmes delivers a great insight into what life was like in rural Missouri in the 20s, 30s, and 40s for a family of poor sharecroppers. His work is inspiring, funny, and educational, and intensely interesting.

    Rocky Comfort

    Being a former student of Wayne Holmes I am a little prejudiced. He was my favorite teacher, so I think his book is great!
    It has some chapters that would be considered "crude" by some, but pretty much tells how life was growing up in the Great Depression as a sharecropper's son.
