Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159453490X, Paperback)Tales from the Front Porch is an outstanding collection of historic stories and personal reminiscences from a man whose family lived through, and participated in, some of the most controversial periods of our country's history. Frank Westmoreland, a retired engineer and resident of Athens, Alabama, listened as his parents and grandparents recounted amazing stories of the Civil War, tragedies of murder and disasters, and recorded them for all of us to enjoy. His ability to treat them with sensitivity, yet sprinkle others with humor, prove that he is not only an accomplished storyteller, but a student of history as well.
Frank Westmoreland served in the U.S. Navy and worked for many years as an engineer. When he retired, he began to record his family history as well as that of Southern Tennessee and North Alabama. As a regular contributing writer to Old Tennessee Valley Magazine, Frank continues to add to his growing number of literary admirers. His eagerly anticipated book includes some of those publsihed stories, as well as many new ones.
