Overview

A Look Back depicts with rich and lively details of growing up in rural Alabama. We survived off the land and homemade medicine. We lived in the woods and labored in the cotton fields. Running water and electricity weren�t available until I was near adolescence � and the same goes for indoor plumbing. Yet any scarcity only served to strengthen my family�s strong heritage, which is far greater than mere material possessions.

Without self-pity, these stories celebrate the human spirit and the triumphant power to rise above any circumstances. What a privilege it is to share these true-life anecdotes of struggle and survival in the Deep South.
