One Comment on “About the Book”


  1. I actually lived in the camp, Texon, Texas when I was a little girl. It was just what I described in the book. It was unbelievably wonderful. There were terrible camps, which were more the norm in the 1930’s, and I described one called Boogertown, where liquor and prostitutes were very available. The families quarters were tents, with mud floors. I hope you check it out!
