Format: Paperback
Katherine Ann Baldwin, author of NO ASHES, has writen an honest, but loving history of her grandfather Robert Carroll Pace. R.C. Pace was born in 1891 in the piney woods of east Texas.
He grew up on a farm, worked as a carpenter, served in WWI, and after a circuitous route that included marriage, more carpentry and some other vocations, he finally settled on a career in law enforcement. He began as a deputy and then was elected Sheriff of Jasper County in 1937.
Baldwin's book is an insider's look at the life of a county sheriff during lean years and some mean years. She relies on long-told stories to fill her book with some laughter, some tense moments and a few tears.
For instance, Sheriff Pace enjoyed liquid refreshment. "When he had time off, he frequently drank. Sometimes he would drink for several days. Never violent, but deeply inebriated, his behavior infuriated his wife [Viva]. ...there was nothing she could do about the drinking. ... He managed to be efficient in the job and Jasper seemed content to have him in office. The popular saying was that 'R.C. Pace was a better sheriff drunk than most men were sober.' "
Baldwin recounts Sheriff Pace's many encounters with criminals and she chronicles his character with great care.
Growing up in north east Texas, I knew men like R.C. Pace. Honest, dependable, hard working, beloved and sometimes ring-tail tooters....but, when you think about it, aren't we all entitled to a few flaws in our character?
