For author Ray W. Linnens, the small, mill village of Belmont in North Carolina was a great place to grow up. It gave a kid like him a lot of places to explore, and he never got bored.
In Seeing the Roaring Twenties through the Eyes of an Eleven-Year-old Boy, he shares stories of a range of experiences from his life from school to play to family and more. Linnens tells how everything was good in the 1920s, but it all came crashing down in the thirties. For a young boy, daily life and the adventures that came proved to be a time of great joy and sadness.
This memoir narrates Linnens’ journey through life, offering a retelling of childhood events that shaped this centenarian’s lifelong perseverance through the Roaring Twenties and the Depression era that followed.
