Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0941130193, Hardcover)In this masterwork of classic Americana, William Owens eloquently recounts his struggle to overcome the harshest of adversaries - poverty and hunger - to earn an education in the small town of Pin Hook, Texas. He recalls in vivid detail how his mother labored to feed her family and hold it together, and how he fought for knowledge in a land that was for the most part illiterate. This is not only the chronicle of one man's insatiable desire for an education, but a rich chapter in the history of Texas. The book was the subject of a Bill Moyers PBS special. (51/2 X 81/4, 320 pages)
