Product description...

A Story from the Timber and Turpentine Days in Southern Georgia

Southerners are historically great story tellers often drawing from their own lives to weave tales of sentiment, humor, drama, or sometimes even horror. They enjoy both the hearing and the telling of good stories. In the case of this book, Arvin F. Spell III grew up listening to his dad tell the family stories about life from the turn of the 19th into the 20th century. That period in southern Georgia was a time of great prosperity for his predecessors, but as with all families, high drama and heart-breaking sorrow were parts of those times. Mr. Spell, in recounting his fascinating and endearing family memories, shares the flavor and color of those days taking his readers back in time to another way of life.
