Book Details

We've Never Had a King

embraces the courtship of Mary and Brad, their early married life, and their experiences in the Kingdom of Iraq during the 1950s when Brad was an advisor to the Government Oil Refineries Administration.

"THE NATIVES WERE RESTLESS!" A combination of frustrations was permeating the atmosphere, resulting in a general unrest of the populace. These STRAWS of contention could ultimately BREAK the BACK of the Iraqi CAMEL!

Presented in anecdotal form, Brad's unique writing style enables the reader to glide from one of their interesting experiences to another.

 

Book Excerpt

"Brad's stories are like popcorn: you can't stop munching till the bag is empty," writes Donnis Baggett,the Editor-in-Chief of The Eagle. "His dry wit and knack for storytelling shine in WE'VE NEVER HAD A KING. Brad's chronicle of life with his beloved wife Mary and their 1950's adventures in Iraq is a smorgasbord of humor and adventure."
