Congratulations Bill Gipson!

So nice to see another MHS 65 classmate publish his stories in Country Kids: A Rich, Full Life!  We can get details and order it at Amazon, but please tell us a bit about it.

front cover back cover

"The cover photo is a picture of the farm house in Southern Illinois that I spent  wonderful time at. That is me on the porch. Note the 1959 Chevy behind the house. I passed it once at 120 mph in my 1972 green Vette.

The book is about the antics of my brothers and I and our friends. Thru the many humorous stories [200+] of these very active baby boomers it endeavors to capture what the life of our generation was like. It also contains some of my poems and thoughts on science [why the big bang theory is wrong, how light travels etc.] and many other things. Some of these stories should not have been told for legal reasons-- oh well."

--Dr. William Gipson [Bill]
