Description

President Jimmy Carter has become an acclaimed, best-selling author since his days in the White House. In An Hour Before Daylight, he offers poignant remembrances of his childhood days in Depression-era rural Georgia. With eloquent yet conversational prose, Carter recalls the events and people who shaped his life from his earliest days. He describes the sharecropping economy of the 1930s, where hard farm labor was done by hand and those who worked felt a kinship with the land. And he reminisces about the handful of people who had the greatest influence upon him, most of whom were black-a remarkable fact considering the strict segregation of the time. An Hour Before Daylight succeeds as both a timeless memoir and a powerful examination of a critical time period in American history. Narrator Tom Stechschulte captures the rhythms of the agricultural South and conveys in a wonderfully warm tone the nostalgic recollections of the 39th president of the United States.
