A WORD ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND THE BOOK
In geological time a half century is a less than a blink of an eye, but
seen from the standpoint of three score and ten it's a pretty fair slice
of time and certainly worthy of reflection. Anyway, I've known William
R. Carr, hereafter referred to as Bill, since the late 1950s. The first
time I saw him was on the school bus. He was dressed in dark clothing.
At first glance I knew he was an unusual character.
Gary DeNeal is a writer and a poet. He is the author of A Knight of Another Sort Prohibition Days and Charlie Birger, and is the editor/publisher of "Springhouse Magazine."
Bewilderment, loneliness and a keen
sense of adventure are potent ingredients in a heady cocktail.
