Product Description

Imagine a life with no electricity, running water, phone service, or traffic, where people labored from dawn until dusk for their basic necessities. Picture a time when the most important things were family, integrity, and hard work. Such was life in the Ouachita Mountain region of central Arkansas in the mid 1940s.

During that era, five-year-old Bill Avery and his family spent two memorable years on a small farm. Life was full of adventure as they discovered and utilized the bounties of the nature around them. It was also complete with struggles and unconditional love. His parents toiled daily to benefit their children-even to the point of extreme hardship-all the while training them to be truthful, generous, responsible, and kind.

Through Bill's research, stories, and recollections, you will experience what life used to look like for rural families in America and understand just how much perseverance was required to survive.
