Description

With over 65 books published, including the breathtaking (and somewhat autobiographical) "A Day No Pigs Would Die," Robert Newton Peck has enjoyed an illustrious writing career. Now, in an autobiography as unique as he is, Peck tells his story through the people in his life. From his roots as a poor Vermont farmer's son to his years as a soldier in World War II, from his time slogging away in a paper mill to his semi-retirement in Florida, Peck shows us people who too often go unseen and unheard-the country's poor and uneducated."For decades, I've examined the autobiographies of my fellow authors. Bah! Many could have been titled "And Then I Wrote" . . . So instead of my life and lit, here is the unusual, a tarnished treasury of plain people who enriched me, taught me virtues, and helped me hold a mite of manhood. They're not fancy folk, so please expect no long-stemmed roses from a florist. They are, instead, the unarranged flora that I've handpicked from God's greenhouse . . . weeds in bloom."
