Son of a Sharecropper tells of the flu epidemic of 1918, World War I, the Depression, and the Dust Bowl. Subject matter ranges from old-time doctoring, one-room schoolhouses, and old-time religion to moonshinin, 'ridin' the rails, and hard times. A thread running through the book is the desire of a sharecropper's boy to own his own land. Every chapter is filled with wry humor; tragedy and triumph are handled with an even hand.

I decided I was going into the navy on 7-16-1956, I went up to Columbia S.C., took all the test and was sworn in, then I was sent to great lakes Illinois for basic training for ten weeks. After basic training, I was stationed on the main side of the great lakes training center for approximately one year, waiting on the ship. I was assigned to a ship on the west coast long beach California, the USS Toledo ca 133. It was 7-4-1957, that is when I got to the boiler room! When I walked into the boiler I was stunned, I thought to myself what have I gotten myself into . So as time went on I began learning little by little ,and after 3 to 4 months I began to feel a little better, and after 6 months I began to love my job for the next 30 years.

This book is a synopsis of my life with the intention of showing how God intervened in my life, and how I reacted to circumstances He created for me for the benefit of others. It is a book of brokenness and healing. It is a book about how He took away all my crutches and left me with nothing to cling to but Himself. It is about my life in the worst of personal situations—where my life ended at Clingman’s Dome and how I was reborn, with an injection of hope from Him, in the same instant. It is about God’s preservation of my life for His purpose. It is about the joy found around the dining table, about the disintegration of my family, and about how God put it back together the way He saw fit. My life started at the edge of a cotton field in the middle of World War II with a life-threatening disease attacking me before I reached one year of age. It is about my total lack of social skills and how God prepared me for higher education in preparation for speaking in front of a thousand people. My life was a battleground with Satan’s attempt to destroy me, and God who intervened at the last second. Being His child assures me that nothing can happen to me without God’s approval, and I have shared those events in this book. It is a book of spiritual warfare with God as the victor and me as the prize.

The writer brings alive the story of an inner circle of friends who are sworn to protect an American girl of Mexican and Italian descent after losing her mother at the age of twelve years old. It is a story of how rape sucks the life out of its victims, a heart-thumping drama of how the suspects are held to an innocent plea over a period of twenty-five years, until DNA evidence proves otherwise. It is a story of how the grandfather’s sanity is pushed to its limit, but the bonds of friendship within the inner circle of friends are not broken. The writer weighs in on the cruel burden of becoming pregnant after a rape, and allowing the child to be born while experiencing the painful future and mental destruction of the victim’s recovery. Just trying to stay alive after the tragedy is difficult. It is a story of how revenge becomes a resourceful tactic to win back the dignity of a rape victim in the shadow of a painful situation, and how an eighty year old ex-police officer and grandfather becomes a smart criminal mastermind by casting revenge on the accusers. The accusers painfully discover it was the greatest mistake of their past when they raped a college student just before her graduation ceremony. A valuable pledge of loyalty to the victim becomes a painful lesson to the accusers.

This is the story of Ted (Roosevelt) Sullen, a Sharecroppers Son. In the story of his life and upbringing, you learn that real American spirit comes in all packages. He overcame his tough upbringing in the rural south only to endure the horrors of Vietnam but never let any of it dampen his internal light. This book teaches you that there are Heroes walking among us every day, if we just take the time to look. “A touching and heartfelt story of a man who overcame many obstacles but didn’t see it that way. He kept moving forward with his entire heart and lived life to the fullest! I loved this story! I am going to share this story with my four children because I want them to know how life was for some and how they can overcome anything in life and still succeed!” Michelle Glover Author of “Hot Button Motivation” “A Sharecroppers Son is a celebration of enormous fortitude not only for Ted, but for the Author as well. Enlightening, poignant and compelling, Ted’s personal story of perseverance, touched my heart and reminded me why this life is worth living. He is an amazing man and a true champion, with a wonderful story to tell. Not only did this book capture my heart, but it will capture yours.” Cynthia Sharp Author of “P.S. You are Loved” "Ted's is a beautiful, amazing life story. As much as I enjoyed the process, I turned each page with more and more inspiration drawn from his passion and compassion. He epitomizes selflessness. Right from the first chapter he looks beyond his circumstances with both inner-peace and strength." Cynthia Askew Editor

This new edition of Southern Writers assumes its distinguished predecessor's place as the essential reference on literary artists of the American South. Broadly expanded and thoroughly revised, it boasts 604 entries-nearly double the earlier edition's-written by 264 scholars. For every figure major and minor, from the venerable and canonical to the fresh and innovative, a biographical sketch and chronological list of published works provide comprehensive, concise, up-to-date information. Here in one convenient source are the South's novelists and short story writers, poets and dramatists, memoirists and essayists, journalists, scholars, and biographers from the colonial period to the twenty-first century. What constitutes a "southern writer" is always a matter for debate. Editors Joseph M. Flora and Amber Vogel have used a generous definition that turns on having a significant connection to the region, in either a personal or literary sense. New to this volume are younger writers who have emerged in the quarter century since the dictionary's original publication, as well as older talents previously unknown or unacknowledged. For almost every writer found in the previous edition, a new biography has been commissioned. Drawn from the very best minds on southern literature and covering the full spectrum of its practitioners, Southern Writers is an indispensable reference book for anyone intrigued by the subject.

This book profiles an American community in the nineteenth century to show the larger process by which the nation was transformed from a life close to the frontier to that characteristic of industrial capitalism. Michael Cassity considers this economic change from the broader perspective of an historian of the American people, offering insights into its social implications and consequences. With graceful and moving prose, Cassity focuses on the process of social change, the pains that change generated, and the resistance to it. In the course of this transformation, the author examines the ways in which workers, farmers, businessmen, and women experienced and responded to the rise of a new industrial order.
