Overview

WE’VE NEVER HAD A KING embraces the courtship of Mary and Brad, their early married life, and their experiences in the Kingdom of Iraq during the 1950s when Brad was an advisor to the Government Oil Refineries Administration.

“THE NATIVES WERE RESTLESS!” A combination of frustrations was permeating the atmosphere, resulting in a general unrest of the populace. These STRAWS of contention could ultimately BREAK the BACK of the Iraqi CAMEL!

Presented in anecdotal form, Brad’s unique writing style enables the reader to glide from one of their interesting experiences to another.

“Brad’s stories are like popcorn, you can’t stop munching till the bag is empty,” writes Donnis Baggett, the Editor-in-Chief of the Eagle. “His dry wit and knack for storytelling shine in WE’VE NEVER HAD A KING. Brad’s chronicle of life with his beloved wife Mary and their 1950’s adventures in Iraq is a smorgasbord of humor and adventure.”

“I recommend that you read this book. You’ll get a history lesson chock full of wit and wisdom. Brad and Mary will feel like your friends by the end, and it will be a friendship you’ll treasure,” writes Dr. Valerie Balester, Executive Director of the Texas A&M University Writing Center.

Brad, born during the Roaring Twenties in Fort Worth, Texas, was greeted with open arms by The Great Depression and World War II. He attended Texas A&M, served in Naval Aviation and worked at Phillips Petroleum Company’s Kansas City refinery before transferring to Iraq. Mary and Brad married in 1951 and spent a wonderful fifty years together before Mary’s passing.
