Beginning May 17, 2013 “Encouragement Loyalty and Make-Do” a new novel by James B. Tippin, Jr. is available for sale!
This book presents an uncharted view of a population largely overlooked in accounts of the Great Depression. You will travel along, with callused feed, patched overalls, wired together shoes, shirts made from animal feed sacks, on a daily, 32-mile one-way bus ride to an awful interruption known as “first grade.”
With humor and an often sobering truth, Tippin will lead you on a journey of life lessons and events as one of the most challenging chapters in our American history unfold. From before the official crash of the American economy in 1929 through the events leading up to WWII, you will partner up with James and his uncommonly insightful partner, a black lab puppy named “Jerry” who was the descendant of a favored dog of the veteran actor Tom Mix.
You are invited to enjoy this unique and heartwarming book and to experience a special history, told from the heart and the pen of a boy and the trust, affection and camaraderie of his big, urbane dog.
