Barn Roofs, Quail Coveys, and General Mischief

By Laurie J. White as told to her by Alfred W. Jones (more or less)

60 pages
For Age 8–Adult

This book presents three short tales from a childhood lived during the early 1900′s in the small, north Georgia town of Dalton. They are told from the perspective of my dad, Alfred Jones, as he told them to me. I had heard these stories all my life, but shortly before he died, I interviewed him to get more of the details.

Following the stories, a section of History Tidbits offers entertaining background facts on related topics, such as shooting marbles, electric cars, and shoveling horse manure in New York City in 1920–it was everyone’s hope that the car would clean things up!
