This is the story of a country boy who grew up on a two horse, hilly, subsistence Tennessee farm during the Depression of the late Nineteen Twenties and Thirties. It tells of the events shaping his life, giving him a value system that helped him live what he considers a happy, fulfilled, reasonably successful life. It tells of his successes and failures and lessons learned from both of these.
These stories were written primarily for his family but others may benefit from understanding some of the experiences of one who is a member of what has been called "The Greatest Generation".

This book was spellbinding. It gave an interesting perspective to the reader and I enjoyed the poems scattered throughout the text. James Woodall Taylor was an amazing story teller and the history behind his writing was not only accurate but entertaining. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in reading about WWII, or teaches this content in their classrooms.
