Dear Hearts & Gentle People

In his two decades as a newspaper writer, Clyde Roy Pack has interviewed dozens of his community's residents, some of whom have achieved a degree of fame and some who find themselves a bit embarrassed to see their names in print. All, however, in their own unique way, have contributed greatly to their world. These essays, much like a snapshot, simply reflect a brief period in the life of the subject. From the little lady preacher to the deputy sheriff who kept arresting the same 37 bootleggers over and over again to the winner of the Hank Williams Jr. look-alike contest, the people in this book are your neighbors regardless of where in rural America you live.
