For those who find themselves reminiscing of times past when life seemed less complicated, let William Jamie Moore take you back in time to an era in small-town America when crime was almost nonexistent, your backyard acted as the grocery store, charity wasn't an obligation; when life generally moved at a much slower pace.
In Growing up in Davie County, Moore offers us an unusually candid and incredibly detailed window onto small-town life in North Carolina in the early decades of the twentieth century. Through the wide eyes of a child, we're transported back to a simpler, pastoral world that existed all over America not so very long ago.
At times informative, at times moving and on occasion side-splittingly hilarious, this collection of stories is a must for anyone who can appreciate the joy of growing up in a friendly, close-knit community.
