Publisher's Summary

Written by someone who has "lived it", this first audiobook by Ray B. Rogers brings home the unique culture of Western North Carolina during the Great Depression. From “Justifiable Homicide” (about chickens, naturally) to “The County Home”, Ray tells it like it is, bringing the listener back to a time when folks worked harder, got along better, and lived closely with the environment. 

Born in Waynesville, NC, in 1929 (he claims he brought on the Great Depression), Ray has gone from growing up with no electricity or running water to blogging about his life at age 85. Few people are better positioned to illustrate some of the changes in our culture, simply by illustrating “how it was”. 

Whether you've shared in Ray's generation's experiences or are just curious about life in Depression-era Appalachia, this audiobook serves up a delicious slice of Americana just for you. 

Stories include: “Nudity and Grand Theft on Richland Creek”, “The Hog Spoon”, “Every Boy Needed One”, “Sorghum 'Lasses”, “Copperheads and Mountain Medicine”, “Maggie's Daughter and the Quilt of Many Colors”, “The Necessary House”, “The Picture on the Wall”, “Hog Killing Day in the Mountains", and “The Circle of Rice”.
