“Come home” to family-sidekick younger brother, Eric, parents that were a united force of consistency and sometimes admirable restraint, Grandma Sally, Aunt Ida, Uncle Red, and those community folk who were not blood-related but family none the less. Mark develops the personalities and one realizes eccentricity and individualism are not dysfunctional. Even as he relates his stories it is okay to chuckle or howl with laughter at each other’s humanity without evil intent. Life goes on and the world still spins.
“Come home” to the small hometown of Gideon that had a school and teachers of exceptional quality. Alan Littell was on the schoolboard. The community supported the quest for education, the teachers and curriculum. Mark relates his shenanigan of teaching his Northern teacher about cotton picking and Mark had always had instant plans. It was just not always apparent to anybody else. These work experiences and yes, even the planning, have kept showing themselves in Mark’s work ethic and seeing things from a different view.
If you want to pick up where Mark’s memories are fleshed out into the realities of today, read this book. Laugh aloud. Be reminded of the times in lives that helped make America the land of the free---and the brave.
