Memories of Spearsville
Hunting excursions with ole Tige. Working hard on the farm. Playing baseball, America's pastime. Swimming in Corney Bayou. Killing snakes by the dozen. These, and many more stories are touched upon by Author Jeff Smith in his third novel, "Memories of Spearsville." Written in the tradition of Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" series of books, Jeff recalls fond childhood memories from the 1970s during regular visits to his grandparents' house in Spearsville, Louisiana, as well as stories told to him by his father, uncles, and grandparents about growing up in north Louisiana in Union Parish in the 1940s and 1950s. There was no time to be a couch potato back then. If you didn't work, you didn't eat. Turn back the clock and take a look at yesteryear in Spearsville.
Author Jeff Smith now lives in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
