Backfields of My Memory

by Loyd Gilbert Gilley

Book Image Not Available
Overview
I lived in a very special time and place that most of those who lived there have forgotten. Or, due to time and age, they cannot remember how wonderful it was. And those who have come since do not realize what happened, how it happened and how very special this time and place really was. It was a time before electricity, running water, indoor bathrooms and telephones. Before I forget, I want to I tell my stories for the benefit and education of my children, grandchildren and all the generations that are to come. The message I want to pass on is that the essence of life and happiness has absolutely nothing to do with material things but has everything to do with loving and caring for each other.
