1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Gerald Dorn on December 20, 2008
This is a remarkable history of one man's life, but it says so much about rural life in the South during the period at the turn of the century and through the formative years of rapid change after WW-II.
Told to Davenport Padgett's daughter and written over a span of 30 years,every page has pearls of insight and wisdom earned by Mr. Padgett the hard way, through experience. What a wonderful movie this book would make! For those who seek insight into the history of this period, this account is a must-read.

Verified Purchase
This is an extraordinary peek into the life of a hard-working, family-loving man reared in rural South Carolina. Born in the 19th Century and living through most of the 20th, he manages to accomplish so much through shear sweat and love. He marries his childhood sweetheart, raises four successful, college-educated children, endures tragedy and triumphs, and maintains a love of the land that he earned through all those decades of plowing his fields. He dictated his story over ten years to his daughter, who wrote it all down by hand, then put it all together, along with a nine-generation Padgett geneology.
