Book Description:

Russell Baker is the 1979 Pulitzer Prize winner for Distinguished Commentary and a columnist for The New York Times. This book traces his youth in the mountains of rural Virginia.
When Baker was only five, his father died. His mother, strong-willed and matriarchal, never looked back. After all, she had three children to raise.

These were depression years, and Mrs. Baker moved her fledgling family to Baltimore. Baker's mother was determined her children would succeed, and we know her regimen worked for Russell. He did everything from delivering papers to hustling subscriptions for the Saturday Evening Post. As is often the case, early hardships made the man.

My "I'm Free, I'm Not Lost label was a little shriveled, but otherwise I survived the freezing cold weather last night, unscathed. : )

Since I already have a copy of this book, I've re-released it, unread by myself. I moved it to a safe warm place for the night. Maybe tonight It'll be curled up with someone in a nice warm bed.
