About the Author

Robert Leslie Smith is descended from loggers, hunters, fishermen, and entrepreneurs.  Now retired, he still lives near the swamp at the head of Mobile Bay, where the Mobile and Tensaw Rivers join.  He served as a Naval Officer in WW-II, and then returned to his teaching profession, nurturing students at Foley High School and finally moving up to Superintendent of Baldwin County, Alabama Schools.

Well, Leslie Smith is a cousin of mine and this story is about our common grandfather and his father, my uncle, so I guess I am not without interest. And, he let me write a chapter for his book. But it is a good book and valid about a time gone by in the Mobile River Delta. If you are interested in how logging and life was in the first half of the 20th century in the swamp,you will like his book.

This book has a wealth of information about how our parents and grandparents lived in the 1930's and 1940's in the swamp. I bought the book for my brother who can remember going into the swamp with our Dad and our many uncles and cousins. He has thoroughly enjoyed the book.
