    • Opening Narration: Growing up on Walton's Mountain in those Depression years, when times were lean and money was scarce, I learned early that hard work was a central fact of life and a key to survival. I wasn't afraid of work, but above everything else I wanted to be a writer. Gripping a book, reading and re-reading the wonderfully colored sentences—this was as close as I could get to another writer, until one afternoon I met someone who showed me the way I must take to be a literary man.
