I had an interesting childhood. For entertainment, we told stories. Horace King: Bridges to Freedom (American Stories). Born in the mountains of north Georgia at a time when almost nobody there had luxuries like running water, indoor toilets, and electric lights, I grew up without television. Some of the stories were family history, like how my father met my mother on his way to marry another girl. Others were funny stories, and some were hunting yarns.
