This book is a collection of all the stories and poems Anita wrote about the places, people and times she loved.
This book started years ago when Anita, along with her husband Jim, moved to a small 30-acre primitive plot in Parke County, Indiana.
To gain entrance to this property they had to pass through the only structure on the farm, a black gate. And so it was then that the "beyond this black gate" journey began.
Anita invites you inside these pages to discover or remember life in Wolf Bayou, Arkansas, the hallways of General Motors or life in Parke County, Indiana.
