Joe Baker and his family navigate life on their South Georgia farm during the 1960s. They battle fire, war and other hardships, until long-simmering animosities unleash unthinkable consequences.

About the Author

Jim Barber grew up working on his uncles' farms in South Georgia while pursuing his dream to become a newspaper reporter. His first job came at age sixteen, covering sports for his county newspaper. Jim spent the bulk of his news career with United Press International before a short stint with the New York Daily News led him to transfer to the world of corporate journalism and a twenty-five-year career with one of the nation's largest utilities. A state and national award-winning writer, he previously co-edited three books. Jim and his wife, Becky, live in Atlanta near Stone Mountain, which he climbs faithfully almost every day. They have three grown daughters, one son-in-law (soon to be two) and three grand dogs. Visit the author's website at
