Overview

This is the story of how the author and his family survived hard times after losing their dairy farm during the Great Depression. To make a living for a large family, they moved to a farm near the Sabine River bottom, into an area known as No Man's Land. They had to contend with disease, floods, predators, and thieves.

On the positive side was the isolation and freedom enjoyed by the children. It was a wonderful way of life that taught perseverance and independence to anyone tough enough to endure.

This story tells about life in the generations past. Actually, it was not long ago as we count time, but seems like it because of the many changes that have taken place in our society. Not many years ago we could walk through the woods without our neighbors suing us for trespass. Children could pray in school. You could build a fire in the fireplace to warm the house without being accused of polluting the air. Parents were in charge of their children's eating habits, whether good or bad, but still in charge. It was a time when individuals took responsibility for their actions and didn't look to others for a handout. This generation knew a life of hard work inspired by a desire to make a life better for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren.

This is a story that shows life is what man makes of it, not what life makes of man. A story of how despair can be set aside with laughter. A story about the class of people who made the United States of America the land of the free and the home of the brave.
