Overview

This true saga recounts the life of the author's mother, who earned the nickname of the book's title. A small woman, what she lacked in stature, she gained in spirit. Poverty, disappointment with her family, tragedy and poor health demanded every spark of her spirit as the years passed. She married a penniless Southern lad whose only assets were the clothes on his back and an indomitable will to work and succeed. They faced the storms of life together. The only thing that ever trembled on that frail little Yankee woman was her chin.

Meet the Author

Describing Paul Dunn is rather complex. He has worn many “hats” so to speak. He was the fourth child of a northern mother and a southern father, becoming the only one to survive to adulthood. Born in 1929, he arrived with the Great Depression of that fateful year. The South Georgia town of Fitzgerald, settled by Northern Civil War Veterans late in the nineteenth century, which became a railroad terminal, cotton mill and sawmill enclave, offered many interesting street characters, stores, cafes and “Honkie Tonks”. The town soon swelled to a population of ten thousand souls, which worked hard all week and played hard on pay day, and crowded the sidewalks, alleys and streets from noon on Saturday until the wee hours of Sunday am. Paul learned to walk on these well worn sidewalks, knew every nook and corner of the town, he experienced more changes, saw more people come and go, more wars fought, and more stories of adventure and romance told in the 76 years he spent railroading, sawmilling, cattle trading, house building, not to mention hunting and fishing adventures. A quadruple bypass heart surgery recently opened the door to a new adventure, now with pen in hand he is trying to recapture his colorful memories on paper, for generations to come, having recently written an award winning short story.
