The Life Story of the Littlest Paratrooper
He ran the ridges of the Ozarks as a boy, helping his family survive the Depression by running trap lines and paddling johnboats on the Big Piney River. When World War II broke out, he joined the 101st Airborne and fought at Bastogne, where a small group of paratroopers were trapped in the snow and besieged by German troops in one of the nation's greatest and bloodiest battles. He returned to become a top-notch fishing guide and one of the Ozarks' most knowledgeable fishermen.
This is the story of one of the Ozarks' most colorful native sons...and this is a book filled with humor and nostalgia and a backwoods philosophy that will lift your spirits.
