This memoir will carry you to a little three-room cabin on the banks of Raccoon Creek in the Northwest Georgia Mountains. Go back to the depression era where you will go with a little six year old boy to his first day of school, watch him catch crawdads and tadpoles, and learn to deal with big bully boys. Learn to deal with doubts, and confusion planted in a young boy's mind by overzealous religious teaching. Sit by the radio and listen to Gabriel Heater tell about the beginning of the world's greatest war. Go there, stand over a large open pit and count the bodies of men, women, and children... of little babies who committed the dreadful sin of being born a Jew. Meet Bunton, the most beautiful girl in Georgia, and witness the pleasures, joys, and hardships of a marriage that lasts 65 years. And then, sit by a cold mound of dirt and relive a million memories. Yes, you will laugh. But, if you are not willing to shed a few tears, do not read this book.
