David Donovan replied to G.W. NEWTON's discussion A BUNCH OF WIREGRASS
"An interesting book of individual tales of childhood in the Wiregrass region of south Georgia.  It gives a real sense of what a white childhood was like in a farming community during the 1930's and 1940s."

I'm taking time checking out the site, thanks for leading me to it, you sounded so excited about your experience with this blogging. Your reading preference is exactly like mine. Genealogy and history, as well as small town writings.
