Ora Smith Warren was born on February 9th, 1893 in Lincoln County, Tennessee. From an early age she was drawn to writing essays, poetry, and short stories. In this collection, Ora shares stories about her grandfather, who was a Civil War soldier. She brings to life the joy of community quiltings when friends and family would gather to share news and freshly-baked pies.
One essay offers her thoughts on what it means to be a woman. Another celebrates the fun of rooking (card playing) with her friends.
From beautiful morning glories to playful grandchildren, from an unshakeable faith in God to the awesome history of our planet, Ora’s inquisitive, insightful works reveal an intelligent woman exploring life during a time before technology.
A wonderful celebration of rural Tennessee at the turn of the century.
