"The Final Call Of The Traveling Soldier" is a novel based on stories my father told me from his life and the lives of his ancestors. Not only did I get the story from my father, but also many elderly people that lived at this time. Due to the content this book was particularly hard for me to write. So with the blessing of my father I enlisted the help of a good friend of mine, Mr. Thomas Cook. I remember my father's sister, Donnie Mae Campbell, loved to talk about the early years. She talked many times about Pastor Daniel and his life. I remember going to church one day and she saw a field of cotton. She had me turn around just so she could go pick some cotton. She kept feeling the cotton and saying, "This is what we had to do." I hope and pray that this book is worthy of the faith placed in me by Willie (Pete) Jenkins by entrusting me with his story.
