About the Book
I was born in the coal mining town of Wayland in the hills of Eastern Kentucky. My youthful years were spent with the family frequently moving from Wayland to Caney Creek then back to Wayland. This wasn’t a problem for me as I enjoyed living in either of the two places. In my teens, I discovered the world outside the mountains and ventured out to see for myself. This is an accounting of my many adventures and misadventures through the years. The mountains were always my safety net. My home is now in Bowling Green, Kentucky where the mountains are not as tall but the air is just as fresh and sweet.
